Sacred light

Word-prompt #never lose your light #freeverserevolution

Lonely tiring firefly

Beleaguered by night

beacon of hope

I seek but never find

lost and longing to be found

beaten and battered by a faithless world

striving to shine

but always eclipsed

obscured and ignored.

Is this a sign? A call to be selfless?

To glow, not burn

Illuminate not blind

Are these the times, when to save oneself, one must save another

to create that halo,

the light of which can never die
