Just a moment’s respite and the darkness creeps in,
Swirling hopelessness in my eyes.
It tries to claw its way in, get under my skin,
Making the nights colder than ice
It noiselessly creeps around my heart,
Desperately trying to squeeze the light away.
It makes me writhe and wrench in pain,
Flashing visceral nightmares
Unsatisfied, it moves in deeper still,
Threatening to reach my soul.
My bones are tired and weak with the fight,
And yet somehow I find the strength to hold
No longer am I sure what keeps me alive,
What truly is which propels me forward.
As those cold hands try to poison my soul,
Something in me always thwarts it
It will never defeat me, never blemish my spark,
Because it doesn’t know I am loved.
I am a child of the Light, of the Supreme Power,
Who aids my every step from above
The darkness out there you better hear me clear,
You may be strong, but I am stronger.
You may break me, scrape me, make me bleed,
But you will never possess me, no never
You can try as you might, but you will fail,
Not because I am sure of myself.
But because utterly I trust in my creator,
Who even in your hell, will reach me and help
The light is strong, so much more,
And in me it will always burn.
As long as I live, it will own my soul,
A spark, a promise unburned.
