I share my light,
it lies deep inside.
A light that is needed
to live a life that satisfies.
Many find their lights extinguished,
they don’t know why
they live in darkness
unable to see.
They seek not what is needed,
are blinded by what others say,
they wear a multitude of masks
to hide behind each day,
never feeling fulfilled, never finding their way.
Be brave and seek the face of Jesus,
He walks with you each day.
Don’t be afraid,
you will never be the same.
