There is Light

And there is Darkness

And we are glass.

 

Purified

So Day can shine through us

Illuminating hearts,

Changing lives.

 

Or clouded

So only Night can glare

Shriveling flowers,

Darkening worlds.

 

We may be warped by our choices

Whether Light

Whether Darkness

Until we can no longer change sides.

Set for good

Of locked on evil

Until

We

Break

And the pieces still reflect an every growing gloom.

 

But there is mercy

For the Glassmaker knows

When what passes through us is not ours,

And hating the darkness,

He still does not hate our form,

Our crystalline hearts.

He still wishes

To save us

From ourselves.

 

There is Light

And there is Darkness

And we are glass.
