Beacon of Hope
by Nicole Perez
I stood there as sunken eyes stared back,
There is something I lack
Seemingly a leaf being pulled away by the tides,
Dragged into the sea only to become out of sight.
I see Him in the nascent light escaping from my window,
But I refused to follow His shadow
I hear Him whispering from a distance
But I doubted His existence.
Oftentimes I wonder,
How much darkness can one hold without any light?
How can one survive in every strife?
Can someone free me from another sleepless night?
Amidst the hustling threats of despair,
I sensed a sudden security in the air
Chaotic drops from above ended
The sun started to glisten.
A mere figment of my imagination
Or the reason for creation?
A foundation that cannot be shaken
Finally, my sleeping spirit has been awakened.
When hope is gone and faith is shattered
When you have lost every battle that mattered
Just call Him through a prayer –
My savior from all my misbehaviors.
