A Little Light


A Little Light
-by Mikki Brain

In that dark, lonesome place
between a dream dreamed
and a dream realized,

I have left a little light for you
so you will know that someone cares
and believes in your dream.

Just where it becomes the most dark
and difficult to find your way,
there is the light I left for you.

it will light your way through the doubt,
the confusion, and the fears.

It will stay with you all the way
to the realization of your dream.

And when your dream has come true,
please go back to that darkest place
where you have been,
and set the little light there
to give heart to the next trembling soul
that braves the path to its dreams.


(a poem from a book given to me by my dad)

"Jesus said, 'I am the Light' "
-John 8:12

"See the salvation of the Lord...The Lord will fight for you...Go Forward."
-Exodus 14:13-15


Fears, like Pharoah's army
Following hard on my heels
Former bedfellows bearing down
Beseiging my Exodus
Out of darkness, into Light

Deign to release me from their ravenous reach
Bidding me bow down
and bear their burdens as before

But this Way You made
Where there was no way at all
Was carved for my crossing
Not theirs

With all my will
I refuse
The Pillar of Salt Paralysis
of Looking Back
of buying into the bluff
of caving to these captors

Slavery no longer suits me
The shackles of those shores cannot hold me
I am being fitted for Freedom
and Brand New Day
Just ahead...

...I move forward on dry ground
as behind me an army drowns.
