A flickering light That used to shine consistent Showing signs of it's time in service No checking on it's condition Trying to illuminate To enhance your vision A selfless light bulb can make A whole world of difference To rescue you from darkness Is exactly what its job is Reguardless of what the cost is It's mission will get accomplished It knows that it's replaceable And still shines every day for you You go and flip the switch Expecting it to make your room Brighter like it always does But this time it doesnt Fill the spots the darkness was The light bulb is done with You twist it counter clockwise And shake it like it has not died Place it back in its socket But no it still does not shine You go ahead and toss it Inside of your garbage One second you need it The next it gets discarded It shined until it died Which is more than most can say This light is like my life Enjoy the glow until it goes away
