A speck of light shines through the cracks
Two beams of light praise the one who gave them that
A radiance of joy and luster
An excitement for the greatness to be mustered
Despite the tears and grief that will open doors for bleakening
Here blows a whirlwind of error, the light will flay
Discover your source, discover yourself
Only then will you live in glory and bask in light of day
For pain and suffering will never be for naught
A value for growth in oneself must forever be taught
Only then will the answers allow you to find
Assess growth or forever live in a chiseled mind
