The Light.

“In Him was life and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it”

 -John 1:4-5

I’ve spent days here,

In a room full of darkness,

the only thing saving me is the tiny light that appears every so often within me.

I can’t take it any longer,

I need a larger source of light, the one within me will never be enough

So I go out into a cold and darkened world

In search of the greater light.

 

 

I think I have finally found it,

The light I so desperately seek

It’s there by the ocean—

As I get closer I realize the light is from a group of people

I ask to join them –

They were my only hope

“I need your light

Without it I’ll be dead soon enough”

They take me in as their own—

Nurture me and feed me the word which gave them their light

But nothing changed,

I ate into gluttony but my light did not shine brighter

I was the odd one out,

A spot of darkness in a land full of light.

 

 

It’s been a year now

The little light I once had is totally gone now.

And I had decided the darkness to be fitting for a soul like mine

So I leave the land of light

To continue my sojourn in a jaded world.

Days go by and everything is bleak

I breathe but I am not living;

I have hit rock bottom

And have finally accepted the darkness.

 

 

I see a bright light,

In it appears to be a man—

I walk towards him and I feel the force of life all around me,

He takes my hand and we begin our journey into the darkness,

But something is different this time

As we walk, the darkness begins to turn into a blinding light

I soon realize that the light comes from within me

I had begun to shine

Brighter than a thousand suns

It was so beautiful, words cannot explain

I look up to him and ask him “Who are you”

He smiles and says

“I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” [John 8:12 ESV]

and then he asks—

“Will you follow me?”.
