The Light is a Window

Through the darkness

A light invades

Uncomfortable, unwelcome

 

A shining light

Interrupting

Our comfortable slumber

 

The light it appears

Is a window

Small & difficult to see through

 

Yet, even from a distance

You can see something different

Something beautiful through the window

 

The closer you get, the

More you can see

And the small window becomes a portal

 

With new eyes

& new perspective

The darkness now seems ridiculous

 

What was once to be feared,

Seemingly a cacophony

Of all that was wrong

 

In the loving light of reality

Is all that should be embraced and celebrated

A symphony of diversity

 

The problem all along, it seems

Was you were snoozing in the dark

Rather than being awoken by the light
