light up the dark

IMG_9197-Edit

we
we are humanity
and throughout the centuries
we have proved over and over
that we have the capacity
for great evil
terrible acts of violence
power-hungry obsessions
clawing our way to awful heights
on the backs of the innocent

but we also have
the capacity
for great love

so love
love hugely
love widely
love extravagantly
love with all your heart and mind
make love the centre of everything you do
let every choice be made with love

do not let the darkness swallow you whole
do not be defeated by the gloom
rise above and
light up the dark
