Light outside my window

Filed under: musings, religion — bardicknowledge @ 10:55 pm

After writing a small blurb earlier about my street light, I thought of this and even thought it isn’t the best piece of writting, I would like to share it with you. Bet ya can guess the meaning pretty easy, but it was meant for you to understand.

Also, how else would I be able to force my crappy poems or whatever you want to call it, down your throat?

 

Outside my window,

There is a light,

That illuminates the street,

Illuminates the way,

Or so it seems by night,

But in reality it only hides,

That which is outside its circle,

A circle of promise,

A circle of warmth,

A circle of protection.

 

During the day,

The light does not shine,

The world lies bare before you,

Stretching as far as the eye can see,

The hidden now revealed,

A new truth is known

No promises,

No warmth,

No protection,

Save what you can do for yourself.

 

This new world can be scary,

Alas,

There is no shying from knowledge,

No turning back the clock,

Unable to remain in the circle,

Many will wonder,

Uncheck,

Unguided,

And here we see the true colors,

Here we see what man can truly be.

  1. I’m not a great judge of poetry (or a great poet), but the poetry seems a bit heavy handed. You’re just kind of describing light, rather than saying something about it. If that makes sense.

  2. I’m assuming this was Jetfx’s going last night. The poem is actually about lossing ones faith in God and being unable to turn back.
