Self Disclosure


She doesn’t want to be
The light of anyone’s life
She can’t be the reason
For someone’s existence

She’s not responsible for
Making the world tolerable
She can’t give or share
Something that’s not there

She’s long since
Forgotten the man
But she’ll never forget
Something he once said

“My greatest fear for you,
is that while you sit alone,
along the rocky shores of life,
you’ll forget that your light is
a beacon for others to see by.”

She wonders if
Anyone knows
Or even thought
For just a moment

How dark ones path
Can quickly become
Pitch so black
As a starless sky

When others choose
Consciously or not
To use that light
Giving nothing in return
