A Street Light Named Inspire

Updated on June 6, 2014
Night stroll in the rain
Night stroll in the rain

I Close My Eyes


I picture me there

Standing on a street side walk

Staring at the rain glare

As I ponder why I am here

The night is dark

The rain is wet

I look at all the cars

That are parked so near


I close my eyes

As they are wide open here


A rainy street corner

With a street light that shines clear

Do not be afraid of the dark

Mothers voice echos like a hawk

The dialoug in my mind grows fierce

Contemplating Moms advice

I continue to berate

Darkeness is negativity

I ruminate


I close my eyes

As they are wide open here


Illuminated by a street light that is there to inspire

As I reflect upon the light that I so admire

Thinking of the cat with nine lives

I analyze

Most of my prances, creatve dances

Hoping to get recognized

Still betting on chances

I close my eyes

As they are wide open here

Dancing in the rain, in the dark

By the light so clear

A street light named inspired

No more do I fear
