Bringers of the Light

some would say we’re too sensitive
call us sissies or say we’re too frail
some would call us drama queens 
and erect walls for us to scale

some would say we’re broken 
angles and edges that just don’t fit
but I see cracks made by growth
where love was free to sift

I see expression, fearlessly 
when some wish to tuck it away
truth tellers in a world of omission
seekers, willing to bend and fray

because, we aren’t afraid of darkness
for our hearts shine too bright
and we have the most amazing job –
we are the bringers of the light

    I am reading the Light between Oceans and your words resonate with the task a light keeper has to do, sacrifice and strength through harshest weather, always bringing light to others. I love your words!

      • I just started reading it and it has grabbed me by the heart strings, the poetic prose and description of that part of land, I love the sea and coastline having lived by the sea for sometime it has a deep pull. And the characters are so beautifully developed, I can almost imagine them speaking. And the intensity and depth of their feelings for one another, neither one perfect but so perfect in trying to be the best for the other. I don’t really want it to end so reading slowly! And yes your words today made me think of Tom and how he is such a steadfast light bearer in all circumstances. Lovely, again just lovely words from you Angela.

  2. I swoon from your mesmerizing words. I love the shadows you’ve placed in the dark corners of a well lit room. We are all broken and nothing is completely pure in the recesses of our hearts. Excellent writing, Angela! 👏💋
