I Learn More

My inner light is fading away.

I have no choices any more.
The leader has made demands.

I read the news each day.
Right action evades me.
I know the millions are afraid.

Each hour love persists.
Proper glances remind me.
I take care when I come near.
What is the answer?

A song embraced me today.
My long-lost smile returned.
Its words filled my soul.

The distant day will come.
I wait for the book to open.

Every day, I learn more.
