To The Light

dscf1468

 

With every screaming nerve
and every frayed edge
 
With the exhaustion that
follows a night of terrors
 
Upon realizing that rainbows
don’t always come with the rain
 
And our desperate pleas
are being swallowed by the wind
 
Fearing that fear itself is
consuming the right, real and true
 
I ask of us all, from heart’s depth
to love, and love more, and then more
 
To not turn away from
terrifying grips of this darkness
 
To not turn away from
the betrayed and the heartbroken
 
To find ways for us all
to come together, fast, deep
 
Let’s please hold hands
With a fierce not-letting-go
 
Let us choose listening not anger
Let us work toward understanding
 
Let us work to carve
Endless paths toward light. – TS
