Listening Diary: Light

Let’s be light,
even if your wick is withering too…
although the lack of fresh air
diminishes the brightness of your eyes…
although the thirst for life absorbs your faith at times…

Let’s be light,
in the dark of pessimism,
before the sadness of the weak,
before the nobility of the redeeming hero…

Let’s be light,
before the distant enemy,
before the lost beloved,
before the narrow cost of pain.

Let’s be light,
light of Hope,
light of Joy,
light of Courage and Valor.
