THE PATH OF LIGHT
The words of our fathers we forgot,
from the path of our fathers we derailed.
The ancient landmark we removed,
and made for ourselves a new path.
Oblivious, we treaded incautiously,
the new path seemed so right.
Ignorant, we forged ahead blindly,
for there was no light at the end of our path.
Confusion broke out,
our language seemed not to be the same.
Division in unity was the case,
seemed like a reoccurrence of the Tower of Babel.
The words of our fathers came rushing;
"a light unto thy path".
Struggling and grappling in the darkness,
we slowly made our way back to the source of light.

With outstretched arms,
we received Him as alms.
Poor in spirit we were,
His glory we got to wear.
Day by day we sought for light,
even as the tunnel's end wasn't bright.
We got pulled back by doubt,
reminding us we were almost out.
We were in the sight of darkness,
but the presence of our Royal Highness,
and our reflection in His likeness,
led us out towards lightness. ***
