The Light

And far away the shadows linger,

Nightmares swirl with rushing power.

Monsters roam with tainted fingers;

With ghastly crime, the evil towers.

And on the battlefield, the soldiers cower.


But in the midst stands one defender,

In the ocean of filth, he stands with might.

Pure and brave, he’s no pretender;

With a heavy heart, he joins the fight.

And fervidly he brings back the light.


-Charlotte Emelia

  1. I really love this writing piece! It has a lot of emotion, which can be tricky in such a short framework. As a survivor of abuse, I also really resonated with the story this piece told, so it was an absolute pleasure to read.
