light

Once again!

I took a speedy route to get there.
Rush rush rush
Thinking I will find light
The joy I have on my face when I see light

I was sad that I search for light
I could not find light
I asked for light
I could not find answers
I research light
My research was a dead end

This mystery got me in a deep thought
Where is light?
I close my eyes it was all dark
I opened my eyes it was all bright
And I thought happily, i have found light
But I later realise I was wrong
Wrong wrong wrong

The light was deep within me
Yea, I found light!
The light was deep within us
Yea, we all are the light of the world.

From our words, we give off a flickering light
That shines - that guides our readers
To near and far - that light will flicker on and on
All the time what we write are read

Sometimes the if we don't look, we find, or seek and ye shall find and look inside ourselves and be surprised, much enjoyed.

Well done. Some search a lifetime to find light. I like the breezy style, the enlightened ending.
