Mortalities Light (Poem)

Black to grey
Grey to white
The building of a brilliant light
A light suspended in the air
High above for the world to share
It’s born to us like any other
From the loving womb of it’s mother
And then it grows
So wild and free
A twinkling for the world to see
We put is up upon the highest perch
Holding it to standards, above reproach
And as it’s light gets brighter and brighter
We start to see it getting wilder
For like the rubber band
That’s stretched so thin
A cracking snap is heard within
With that the light we’ve held so high
Slowly starts to fade, then die
