And There Was Light

 

  “Let there be light,” and there was light.

 

Round and round the merry-go-round spun, faster and faster.  The images surrounding her blurred with the speed of the turns, yet the surroundings remained the same.  Her eyes crossed while trying to focus, her head teetered in the unstable balance.  Her stomach lurched in reaction to the challenge.  Her heart shriveled with loss of hope, desperate for solid ground.

 

He saw that the light was good,

 

The joy of learning woke with her each morning as she dressed for school.  Each day brought new opportunities to excel and to reach higher yet for more.  Knowledge, Wisdom and Love set her on a new path of life, a journey into the land of freedom, adventure and abundance.  There is laughter here in the halls of this school.  The walls seem only to guide to safety and to security, promising direction into a future of hope.  Life sprang eternal and invincible and roared with courage and power. 

 

and He separated the light from the darkness.

 

Off she trotted into this new life, facing the world.  She faced the world, armed with super powers and dressed in super armor, standing firmly with her new family.  Life sprang eternal and invincible and roared with courage and power.  The promise of a future of hope spurred her own, yet the rattling of the merry-go-round began to clang. 

Round and round the merry-go-round spun, faster and faster.  Her eyes crossed while trying to focus, her head teetered in unstable balance.  Knowledge, Wisdom and Love spit her out from the dizzying vortex.  Suspended between the family old and the family new, she dressed each morning for work.  Her heart shriveled with loss of hope, desperate for solid ground. 

Into the limbo of life walked light.  Dark corners were filled with wonder.  The warmth grew and spread, touching places that were bruised and unloved.  As if harnessed to a rocking chair, the enticing motion lulled the occupant into a seductive sleep.  The chair continued to rock and the clock continued to tick away.  The years passed on and the rockers furrowed deep.  One of the rockers broke and the motion stopped.  In the stillness, Knowledge, Wisdom and Love returned. 

The joy of learning woke with her each morning as she dressed.  Each day brought new opportunities to excel and to reach higher yet for more.  Knowledge, Wisdom and Love set her on a new path of life, a journey into the land of freedom, adventure and abundance.  There is laughter here in the halls of this school.  The walls seem only to guide to safety and to security, promising direction into a future of hope.  Life springs eternal and invincible and roars with a certain knowledge of darkness and light.  Off she trots into this new life, with her back to the world and following after the Light.

  “Let there be light,” and there was light. 

He saw that the light was good,

and He separated the light from the darkness.
