Inspiration follows me

tapping its toe

patiently…waiting,

and

fending off foes.

Nature assists

leading me on,

nudging forward

until the dawn.

The arc of insight

grows clear

as now fully armed,

the message spills forth,

to uplift those harmed.

Gather the lanterns

round us this day,

gather the hope

laying at bay,

onward we go

breaking the day,

strength in numbers

into the fray!

Bringing the light

to all those afraid.
