On those nights when it’s the darkest
There’s no light within your eyes.
All your hope has faded
And the tears will never dry.
That’s the time to regain focus
To close your eyes and breathe
And calm your mind and your soul
To reclaim what is underneath.
Center yourself, and you will see it.
A tiny burning spark.
Your ember of inner fire
That can still conquer the dark.
Let it draw you to it.
Like a moth to proverbial flame.
It will never hurt you.
But you won’t ever be the same.
Once the fire consumes you and
The flames extinguish your tears
The strength you feel will overcome
Those troubles you’ve had for years.
Keep those eyes closed tight and watch
All the negativity burn away
Let your entire self become the light
And wake to a brand new day.
