The Power of Light

The Power of Light

A Poem by C.A. Lucas

Tears of confusion
Stream down my face hastily
It’s a delusion

Pain has taken me
Everything is ugly
Jesus, help me

So, Jesus did
An inspirational spark
In front of my eyelids

Look out the window
There’s a mysterious light
Makes my beauty flow

The bright light blinds me
And for a moment I see
Pure, bleeding beauty

Color returns, now
My body feels soft and light
Dry tears are rainbow

The evil shadows
Have now left my bright bedroom
Now I have no foes

I see from inside
Seven-thousand butterflies
They don’t want me to hide

One by one they flew in
One by one they picked me up
As light as a pin

Butterflies of light
And Jesus himself
Awoke me in night

They carried me far
Illuminated insects
Away from the dark

I was oh so high
Above the clouds I soared
Then they dropped me from the sky

I fell for a while
Afraid of nothing, only fear
Then I hit a pile

A pile of my own
All things held dearest to me
But they didn't matter…

I had flown!

This is amazing! I'm not sure I've ever liked to read Jesus this much.

I hope you write more like this one.

To land in a pile of your belongings, only to fly as well as land . . . Did you somehow reincarnate into a butterfly upon death? If so, that was amazingly clever.
