»Be Yourself.«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, August 10, 2017

At times our light attracts negative
Energies. We have become homes
To spirits that are not welcome.
Every day we envy and despise
Individuals who burn their torches,
Yet we forget to ignite the fire
From within.
Never parade another man’s light,
When you dim your light seeking the
Light from another being.
Let your light shine, let your light reveal
The light from within.
Be Yourself!
