Light of Joy

———————————
You are a child of freedom,
And yet you give it up so quickly –
And then the light of day is longer in coming.

As a babe, not long out of the light,
In the depth of your eyes, gleamed a spark sublime.
And the world wanted your joy.


But the burden of the world,
Could not understand the light of joy,
And failed to see its worth
.
