Let them be as darkness,
serene, obscure, empty,
but unable to see the lies within.

I’d rather be a shining, luminescent light,
breaking through
to reveal the truth in all.
It’s difficult to do,
but simple to accomplish.

To guide you in the right direction,
leading you to a permanent path
of true righteousness.
To be untouchable,
but still there.

I’d rather be warm as the summer’s sun,
then chilling as the midnight moon.
To go deep within your skin,
bringing out the best in you,
and paying it forward.

I’d rather be open and free,
than trapped in a cage of space.
If I could overcome all that is dark and evil,
I’d rather be a spark of light.

This poem illustrates how I am kind and that I try to bring out the good in others. From reading my poem, I hope people will become warm hearted and nice to others so that those people can pay it forward, making this world a much more happy place to live in. Writing this piece, I hope to inspire others and bring kindness all over the world.
