I try the light, but it won’t turn on.
This year’s tragedies
have come and gone.
But all of it’s still fresh in my memory.
And thinking about
It only brings me misery.
The civil unrest and political
bickering is never-ending.
The love and decency is gone
there is no use in pretending.
The light is fading.
The world is changing.
Our positivity and
love is degrading.
We’re turning against our sisters
and our brothers. From our fathers
and from our mothers.
Our love and compassion
has to come back.
Let us find the light, the light we lack.
Let’s be lights within the darkness.
And light and ignite the world with love.
