Aflame

A diamond in the dark is just a stone,
whose facet faces own no inner fire.
It's brilliance is derived from light on loan,
however bright it's sparkle might aspire.
A man whose mind holds Heaven unbeheld,
spiritually is lightless and untaught,
and greets 'True Grace Eternal' uncompelled
to reverence both in action and in thought.
And such a man, with heart like stone to love,
the glimmer of compassion's perfect gleam
cannot escape the gloom he's victim of
nor luminate the landscape of his dream.
The moon is lit with sun's reflected shine,
and souls of men delight in light divine!
