The Luminous Heart

A call for hope,

luminous heart

Light resides within hearts;
Let it hug hope rays before its sun sets
You either remain steadfast,
or you shall live alone trapped in life’s nets

Despair is weakness and a cowardly fear;
hope opens locked doors, and dreams cheer

You either remain steadfast,
or you shall live alone amidst your past

Touch the greenness of the trees;
feel the moon’s light, and its cool breeze

Carve hearts on senseless stones;
radiate life into decaying bones

Ahead of you… hurry… crossover
Walk the distance, it’s not yet over

What else could bring your dreams near,
save a heart that knows no fear?

Many people accept their fate,
they blindly catch its bate;
swaying amidst life’s blows,
they raise the white flag, and of their dreams dispose.

You either remain steadfast,
or you shall live alone downcast

Sweeten the bitterness of the days;
seek to make your life blaze

Getup, color your dreams;
from dark clouds, create rainbow beams

Inside your body, there is still a soul,
capable of treating your heart’s hole

Of your weakness stop screaming,
and don’t you dare stop dreaming.

  3. Heey) This poem is so amazing! Very deep and it went straight to my heart! It reminded me of the author William Blake. Sorry if it’s bad, I know some people do not like being compared with others but he is such an incredible author! If you haven’t heard of him, definitely look him up)
