The Light has finally Shined on Me

I was told

Have heard

Have wished for love

True love

Kind love

Patient love

Impatiently waiting

And stumbling

And failing

And praying for that thing

The thing in movies

In books

In plays

I play my hand

With a rigged deck

Not knowing

That I can’t win

Won’t win

Until I fold

I submit

I give up

And look up

At the sky

And see the light

The blinding light

That scares the broken

That chases away the pain

That makes me smile

And I’ve been smiling

Every since that light

Shined itself on me
