The Light is a Window

Through the darkness

A light invades

Uncomfortable, unwelcome


A shining light


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
