Ignite

Stare at reflections
in various shades,
marching in crowds
like armies of blades.

Fueled with attacks
and willing to share,
lost hope in a sack,
too afraid to care.

Look in the mirror,
what is it you see?
A power and strength
weakened by defeat.


A courage that ran
as life became tough,
flying boomerang,
enough is enough.

Contagious deceits
are spread by our views,
cure quick with strong will
or chaos consumes.


Power from within
our birth given right,
grasp on to this strength
choose to spread pure light.

  1. β€œPower from within
    our birth given right,
    grasp on to this strength
    choose to spread pure light.” Such a wonderful garment to don before walking out into the world and a powerful reminder that we are each capable, no matter what or who tries to drain our energy, of furthering the spread of light not darkness. This is beautiful Grace ❀️

  2. An illuminating piece indeed, Grace ! Contagious deceits
    are spread by our views…so true! Beautiful write βœοΈπŸ’πŸ’–
