From every side
they clamor and claw,
yearning to steal
your heart, your money,
your mind.

Shadows grasping at shadows.

You were not born
to live in this darkness.
Your heart is a sun
that shadows cannot reach-
don’t be fooled by its husk.

Why be satisfied with dust
when an ocean of light
is surging within?

Thou art My lamp and My light is in thee. Get thou from it thy radiance and seek none other than Me. For I have created thee rich and have bountifully shed My favor upon thee.”

– Baha’i Writings
