When we see change in the world we treat it as something taboo in the beginning, but when we see its benefits and rewards we accept it and make a normality

Im just a candle,
Trying to stay lit on a windy night.
So far, its been a struggle,
But so far i've been alright
At the moment, im in the dark alone,
I need your help, to keep burning,
Though the dark and wind,
Because i cant do it on my own.

Wind blowing, wheres the night going?
Day light breaking but the moon is still showing
I'm lit like a candle, fiery explosion,
Indulge in this loving emotion,
Convulsion from love knowing,
There will always be a spark in my head devoting,
All hours of the day to the one who is forever glowing.

"Darkness to Light"
Hardly seen yet so distinct,
As i stay lit through the night.
The stars shine dim through the clouds.

Struggling to stay lit through the darkness.
Although dark surrounds me, i see clearer now.
The moon is lit, glowing by reflection of sun.

I gaze around me, still darkness, we're not done,
Not till it is safe for our children,
Our daughters and our sons.

The author's comments:
I wrote this with a friend of mine who doesnt mind to be named, Jeremiah. We alternated stanzas and put it together into one writing piece, i cant take credit for all of this piece.

alot of the ideas from this writing came from Matisyahu's song, "darkness to light"

I think if you start on your own, for a cause that is righteous, other will join, no matter what the circumstances, you wont finish alone.
