This little light of mine cannot shine
It’s dead
It’s dull
It’s been shun

This little light of mine is like gum
Banished from the mouth
Chewed up
Used up
Spat out

This little light of mine is out
It’s famished
Outshined
And dried up

This little light I call hope
Is killing me
Silencing me
Drowning me

Despite all the signs
That this little light
Will be the end of me,
I ignored.
