The subtle soft glow
Extends hope
Down life’s dark drifts

And the dim gleam grows
If we simply trust
Shimmer over shadows
As eyes witness wisdom,
Brilliance talks truth
To what the light ignites

This poem was an experiment to see how many synonyms of light I could in include in a short poem without it feeling repetitive. How successful was I? I guess your feedback will help me measure the results.
