Guiding Light


Engulfed by a heavy heart filled with wounds,          

He longs to be free from compunction and despair.               

His past causes him anguish and fear         

For he is tortured by his guilt,

Like a sun-starved flower that will only wilt.

He knows not of joy and delight,

And sobs under the darkness of the night.

His head throbs and his heart aches,                                                                                                       

Wishing he could rectify his mistakes.

His illness spreads to the very core,

But when he feels there is nothing worth fighting for,   

Gods steps in and answers his prayers,

And frees him from his anguish and fears.                      

With the gift that he bestows,

He guides him to the road where his happiness grows.
