POEMS: “I Am the Light of the World” by Helen Steiner Rice

Bali-Sunset

“I Am the Light of the World”

In this sick world of hatred
and violence and sin,
Where society renounces morals
and rejects discipline,
We stumble in darkness
groping vainly for light
To distinguish the difference
between wrong and right. . .
But dawn cannot follow
this night of despair
Unless faith lights a candle
in all hearts everywhere. . .
And, warmed by the glow,
our hate melts away
And love lights the path
to a peaceful new day.
