There was movement
And I saw it;
I opened my window a little
And let the light flitter in.
I saw the outline of a rainbow
Floating gently in the sky—
I was in pain and teary-eyed,
But with my youthful might,
I prayed that if there is a God
That dwells in the sky,
Then he should save me from myself.
And suddenly, I saw the stars twinkle
And felt peace all around me.
And from that special moment,
I want my words to become a light
That will flitter into a heart
And give the heart a glimpse of hope.
