The Light He Sparks

i am one small lamp in the world,
     one mere light upon this dark path.
God wakes me every morn.
He gives me poems to write.
He offers messages to share.

As we must walk in the shadows
     of this world for now, please know...

There is a light to guide
     those who choose
To trust in the lamp
     the Lord provides,
Who choose to rely on
     the light He sparks
          deep inside.

For those who make
     lamps of their own,
Who walk in the light
     of their own kindle,
They shall lie down
     in beds of torment for
          an eternity of nights.

Isaiah 49:6, 50:4-5 and 10-11
