Do you know someone like that? They are rare. They too find stones on their way, like all of us. This is dedicated to one in particular, who had to deal with some big boulders for some time now.
When you have a light of your own, you are blessed in many ways.
It makes you unique, and rare. It makes you excel, and be creative, regardless of your activity. It gives you drive to keep going forward, when any other would give up. It brings you a deep-seated freedom no one can reach or limit.
It makes impossible not to notice you, or to forget about you. It shines on people around you – the world as a whole becomes a little bit brighter. Looking at you, people see more truth. You are a beacon.
Your are contagious, you rekindle damped lights around you, and make new ones spring to life. You bring solace, regardless of your good deeds. You bring hope, regardless of your achievements.
Your light cannot be turned off, not even by you; it can be damped, but no one was borne, yet, able to extinguish it.
Your light makes you tough and brave, as you fend off those who fear and envy it –there are fair amounts of them, of those with secret places that must remain in the dark.
It makes you strong, as you hold off those seeking to control its shine – there are fair amounts of them, who try to stiffle it down or use it for their own good.
It makes you kind, as you realize how blessed you are, compared to the sombre crowds you walk among.
It makes you generous, as you realize that sharing makes it shine all the brighter.
God bless you – you with a light of your own – life flows stronger around you.
May you never doubt you have it – may you always use it, full power, both for your sake… and ours.
