The Light

The Light

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

The Light

 

A flicker was all she could see,

In the distance, a tiny light.

It seemed far away, out of reach,

Finding herself straining for sight.

 

For she was in complete darkness,

Save only the light which flickered beyond.

Alone and in distress,

She and fear had an unwanted bond.

 

Her idle thoughts raced,

Not knowing what lay ahead.

What would she face

If she kept moving where the light led?

 

In the darkness, the flicker was bright,

So, she had nowhere to look…

But to the glowing light capturing her sight.

Oh how she was hooked!

 

For it beckoned her onward to the blessed light,

Fleeing from fear with each step.

Pushing through with such might

That she realized her depth.

 

She bothered not to look back,

For fear was no more her plight.

The further she went, and darkness slacked,

The closer she came to the Light.

Hopeful, powerful and wonderful words shared dear Melinda.
"She bothered not to look back,
For fear was no more her plight.
The further she went, and darkness slacked,
The closer she came to the Light."
I did like the above lines. I do believe. Seek darkness, you shall find. Seek the light of hope, you shall find. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.
