Read Poem: A LIGHT WITHIN THE DARKNESS, by Jacob Black

I try the light, but it won’t turn on.

This year’s tragedies

have come and gone.

But all of it’s still fresh in my memory.

And thinking about

It only brings me misery.

The civil unrest and political

bickering is never-ending.

The love and decency is gone

there is no use in pretending.

The light is fading.

The world is changing.

Our positivity and

love is degrading.

We’re turning against our sisters

and our brothers. From our fathers

and from our mothers.

Our love and compassion

has to come back.

Let us find the light, the light we lack.

Let’s be lights within the darkness.

And light and ignite the world with love.
