I Light A Light

by CJ Maleney   Sep 25, 2017


I light a torch within this black
To show there is a way
Not everything wandering or lost
There will always come the day.

I flick a switch of Man made form
To make a current flow
To show there is a warmth here
To remind you we can glow

The beacons are all now lit
And they stretch over many lands
You have to walk towards it though
Then grab that outstretched hand
