Lyrics of Light

Trust, hope, love, and belief is what we all want in the end
Yet unseen scars are bleeding and burning within
Walls of mistrust and misery are closing in
“Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend”

Open hearts and minds aren’t to blame
Harmony is shattered at a cost
Among ignorance, tolerance is lost
“We’re one but we’re not the same”

When dust settles and you can again find the path
May your soul gather peace with its journey
May you meet others whose hearts are free
“Just remember you are not alone in the aftermath”

The stars, they may not always align
Though the ones that can, will glow forever
Join them, endure, just be…however
“You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine”

George Michael, U2, Adam Lambert, Katy Perry

    Thank you, Chris and Carolyn. I enjoyed writing this poem for the contest. "Careless Whispers" is my all-time favorite song. The musicians noted are all about acceptance and love of others and to be true to yourself. So glad to have my words mesh with their lyrics.

    Dear Shani, WOW!!! This is a superb poem and I love the way you blended the lyrics. "Careless Whisper" is my favorite slow-dancing song. So romantic. Congratulations on your win! Just got back from fishing trip and hope to post a blog announcing my contest winners and having some fishing photos -- maybe later today. Love, Carolyn

    My goodness, you only had two comment before the comments of congratulations? This is a super entry for the contest, and this poem stands on its own outside of a contest. Congratulations~!
