Feeling for Switches in the Dark

Ye who are enlightened so,
Seek not to pull others from afar
Into your illuminated ring;

Expect not
That any will come
To bask in your luminary glow.

Rather, move around
From darkness to darkness;
Your light source will follow

Staying,
Shining,
Long enough,

That others might feel your warmth
and have light sufficient
to find their own switches.

22 “The eye is a light for the body. If your eyes are good, then your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are evil, then your whole body will be full of darkness. And if the only light you have is really darkness, then you have the worst darkness.

Matthew 6:22-23
International Children’s Bible
