Spark

Spark-1280-jpg

 

I want my words to arc like the cathedral’s highest ceiling,

to refract light in the silent darkness,

broken only by the shiver of a candle’s flame.

I want my words to bring you back to a summer day

When the road ahead seemed reckless and unattainable,

And you didn’t care – because this day would never come.

I want my words to remove the shadow of rejection and sorrow

The years have cloaked you in, so that you can appreciate

What you have, and not mourn what you did without.

But most of all, I want my words to ignite a spark,

To make you move, to foster love, to help you shed the doubt

That has weighed you down for so long.

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!
