Pay it forward.
If you are the first,
pass on what you know
and watch what others grow beyond.
If I’m to be your spark of light in the dark,
you need to pass it on after you,
and so on and forth.
Or be the spark in your own dark,
a candle of hope in the personal abyss.
When you set your mind to brighter lights,
your body soon will follow suit.
In the same manner, one being leads,
and others are moved by the guidance of the first.
Leaders are what the followers grow beyond,
sparked to action and passing on what they know.
Pay your love, your hope forward,
be the example you’d want to see in others.
Be the spark that ignites the flames of all,
forever to give without needing to get.
One being does make a difference
when their cause is inclusive and inviting.
Be the being of light they are to emulate.
To you they’ll dedicate, to others they will teach,
and to those they touch amidst darkest treads,
your actions will have been the difference.
