Light Makes Right

4 Jun


Light Makes Right

Headlines popped up as I tried
To go about my day
Someone did a bad thing so
The world is in dismay

The fervor and the passion was
Intense to say the least
Unfortunately most people aren’t
Acquainted with that beast

Intensity: the power that’s
A monster or a saint
Depending on which spectrum of
The light which you acquaint

There’s people who are angry and
They’re breaking things with rage
And then there are the quiet ones
Who act with much more sage

They’ve paid attention to headlines
From not just their lifetime
But all the way through history
Back to the premiere crime

Of brother killing brother over
Really bad advice
Or jealousy? Or spite? Who knows?
But what’s for sure: the price

When one acts out of rage there is
A price that will be paid
Even if the destruction
Is for a pure crusade

The ones who take a deep breath and
Who dwell within the light
The ones who think instead of blurt
Who plan instead of fight

Are warriors who understand
The power in their hand
And use it each time to take an
Illuminated stand
