Isolation

Written by: Matthew Anish

Stony cliffs surround the 
   lighthouse 
  as waves buffet 
        the shoreline 
The lighthouse keeper stands alone 
He will weather the storm 
     Fierce winds blow 
               from the North 
  Yet he persists 
in his duty 
He knows that ship captains 
      depend on him 
He lights up the beams 
    They cut through the 
darkness
Preventing ships from 
      crashing on the rodky coast 
Th isolation of the lighthouse 
keeper 
       is part of the reason 
the lighthouse keeper 
    does not falter
  Standing alone he saves 
large vessels from destruction
