In this darkened night,

Voices are gently whispering,

Quietly, calling out for the light.


The light of hope shimmering

Faintly, amidst a sea of shadows,

Locked in silent prayer.


Glowing in the heart of darkness,

A feeling shines with fortitude.

An emotion traveling beyond distances,

So that one day, it may reach you.


A prayer of hope.

A light amidst the sea of shadows.

One day, it will reach you,

This promise of our future.

A/N: My writing teacher mentioned the fact that i need to punctuate my poetry for easier interpretation. Any thoughts?
