Darkness

Cannot Snuff Out That Light

DARKNESS - Cannot Snuff Out That Light

 

Darkness came and struck it’s blow;

“I’ve come to steal and kill, and bring you low.”

 

Darkness was waiting for it’s time and prey;

“Now let my destruction spread upon you today.”

 

Now Darkness watches prideful, beaming with delight;

“Let’s see how many crumble and no longer fight.”

 

Darkness conspires to spread across the land;

“I have homes and towns and countries crushing in my hand.”

 

But Darkness is greedy, lust drunk and blind;

“If they cower and retreat, real strength they’ll never find.”

 

See, Darkness has a weakness, its kryptonite;

“Keep them scared, no hope, unkind – no love, no light!”

 

All of Darkness, its plans, its schemes, must flee, and cannot stand;

“Dammit the flicker from just one man!”

 

Darkness exists and deceives, but is already defeated;

“Why must their faith, their hope, their love leave me cheated!”

 

Darkness has but limited power, and sometimes breaks through for a moment, an hour;

 

But Light has triumphed and won the battle for those who stand,

and nothing can conquer Love in the hearts of man.

 

So be ever watchful, stand guard, and Hope;

have Faith and Love which is needed the most.

 

For a little flicker, the warmth of that flame is a beacon to others to shine the same.

Darkness waits and Darkness strikes, but Darkness cannot snuff out that Light.
