The Beacon

The Beacon

Today I am struggling

But this too shall pass

Today I am low

Ill tempered, alas

Today I have sunk

And reached a plateau

But the only way is up

No further down shall I go

Yet today I connected

With a familiar voice

Put a face to the kind words

That had given me solace

And this lifted me

Out of myself

It gave me hope

Like casting a spell

A beacon in the darkness

Thus everything seems less bleak

A source of strength

When I was feeling weak
