The Power Within

Form: Cornish Sonnet 1

Where lies the power to conquer the dark
When stars do not shine, the moon has no light
And the thoughts of the mind are cold and stark
In a lost world where is the hidden truth
How is it buried in the hateful spite
Why can’t we see it til old in the tooth
But from the soul, our one weapon of hope
The courage to face all that brings us fear
And the self-esteem that says we can cope
For in darkness there shines a perfect light
And that light is always so close and near
The truth in the heart defeating our fright
Where lies the power to conquer the dark
But from the soul, our one weapon of hope
