The Starry Eyed
The darkness is not our enemy,
the blindness is.
The darkness cannot defeat us
unless we loose sight of the light.
We CAN navigate the blackest night,
not by trusting the stars in the skies,
but the stars in our eyes.
We were created with light inside us,
We are lanterns with burning hot white heat,
We are the ones who must combat the blindness,
We are the starry eyed.
And alone or together, we will navigate this night.
Alone or together, we must be the light.
One thing is certain, one thing we know,
When light shows up, the darkness with go.
Until that time comes, we choose to stand,
With stars in our eyes and hope in our hands.
