When the dull ache of a barren heart
chills you to the bone
lift your eyes to gaze upon the night sky,
for even the loneliest of stars shines bright.
When the thick fog of a cloudy day
blinds you to life’s worth,
let the spectrum of light illuminate your core
and radiate all you offer.
When a cold breeze steals your breath
and stifles your brittle voice,
open your lungs and scream defiance,
a mere spark can birth a fire.
