A Light

A source of warmth

Of comfort

Of truth

Of peace

A shining brilliance

That everyone hopes to find

An absoluteness

Darkness

A source of coldness

Of distraught

Of fear

Of concealment

A devouring sense of loss

That no one hopes to endure

An end

When at the crossroads

Of a choice you do not want to make

Which would be truer?

Take the road that which you gain

Light

Love

Acceptance

Peace

Truth

Or a road that which shows all it conceals

Pain

Death

Distraught

Fear

Take a road that gives you all you need

Or the road that gives you an opportunity

An opportunity

To shed light on someone else's fear

And make it shrivel

An opportunity

To help unearth the light

That had been hidden for much too long

Spread a light

That can shine through the darkest black

Spread a light

That will show a ray of hope somewhere; anywhere

Spread a light

That you can be sure will heal

Spread a light

That is undeniably

True


A/N-- I was inspired to write this after reading and watching in theaters "The Soloist." I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did the story.
