Love is a light

sunlight pours onto my face in the light afternoon

holy baptism of love in this fine, late June
I bathe for awhile – reflect on the light
acknowledging love is the luminescent prerequisite for my sight

particles scatter through the air and make way to my skin
makes me feel like the warmth inside me is worth something
I want to scatter my light to more parts of the earth
so that my soul might be lighter in the end. that’s my worth

sometimes i feel lost and hopeless
I’m on an island, coastless
And entropy
Is working against me

But I know deep inside
This little light of mine
i’ll just keep shining my light
i’ll just keep shining his light

love is a light
& I want to be where the light is.
