Punishment

To only know the darkness;
Born with the veil over one's eyes,
So that one doesn't even feel it.
You cannot take it, earn it, win it;
The veil is removed by Grace.

 

And having become accustomed
To the light; there is no greater
Punishment than being thrown
Back out into the dark.

Nothing is without light

A solitary bulb with only an echo of past light

Can only long for a new filament

As it grows cold in the night
