A Spark, a fuse.

I forgive the world it’s darkness

because I love it’s light

We would never see the stars

if it wasn’t for the night.


If you find life too gloomy,

nothing but murder on the news,

light a spark, however tiny,

it’s enough to fire a fuse.


One day the sky might glimmer

with rainbow rocket fireworks

lit on the day you refused to give in

and let the darkness win.


Set the night on fire

with the light that’s in your heart,

doesn’t matter if it’s small,

all you needs a spark.
