Each of us,
wittingly or not,
is an incandescent creature
of such beauty,
that we rival the heavens.
Having averred this positive opinion,
I will modify it with contradictions:
our incandescence is dimmed by morose attitudes,
by evil, hatred and ignorance,
by deliberate rejection
of the possibility of joy or love.
But redemption is within our power.
When we remove the dark cloak
we have donned for invisibility,
the brilliance of our being
astounds all who are in attendance.
Shuck off the assumed mantle of gloom
to become who you truly are:
your true self,
incandescent with joy,
full of wonder at the gifts of your life.
