the absence of light

jjj-2018

in an age where celebrity is king

enamored followers form a herd

to look, dress and act like the next big thing

to dress like them

talk like them

echo their opinions

not even remotely aware

that they’ve become minions

Celebrity is merely the act

of being famously famous

it comes from a spotlight

not from any form of truth

 

I celebrate the regular folk

those who struggle daily

to do the right thing

without fanfare and red carpets

for deep inside each righteous soul

even those that walk in obscurity

is a beacon of true light

burning within

to light up the world

for all to see

or enjoy the night

because darkness is more than just the absence of light
