The Bright Ones
The Bright ones, no longer the Huddled ones
Slowly they begin to come out into the open
Standing straight with bright clear eyes
Looking at their Host, who brought them
To this point of brightness
“Is this what pure love does?
It has released us from fear.
We feel so free.”
The Host smiled at them.
He raised his hands
Then clapped to bring attention
“I would like all of you to meet the Bright ones.
Though once the Huddled ones in fear;
Now released into love.
The guests came to each Bright one
Greeting them with honor
Much joy and laughter are heard as they celebrate
The coming out of the Bright ones
Shyly, the Bright ones begin to tell their stories
Where they came from and how they became Huddled ones
Such journeys for each one
Heaviness and darkness
The Bright ones, as they told their stories
Began to shed off the Huddled old nature
They seem to be peeling
It looked gross, but once peeled off
The old nature turned to dust
All who knew their Host rejoiced
For the new man was energy from the old
As they shed their fear and loneliness
Replaced by pure love and light.
They started to shimmer and shine like
All the other guests.
The Bright ones only felt love given
