Not the Brightest Bulb........

Pain, famine, drought
Violence, abuse, addiction
War, greed, poverty
Darkness, resistance, despair
Corruption, oppression, genocide
Intolerance, tyranny, exploitation
Dysfunction, trauma, suicide
Racism, sexism, fanaticism
Terrorism, nihilism, hedonism

I am:
Not the smartest
Not the most educated
Not the holiest
I ain't pretty - I just look this way

Even my minimal light
Can shine
In contrast 
Through the dark...

Therefore I must
