18 Dec A Hanukkah Poem
A Hanukkah Poem
Ashrina Chen wrote this poem and drew this beautiful picture to celebrate the Third Night of Hanukah
I hold here a paper, It’s blank and it’s white White is pure and it’s clean White is made out of light Now im adding on pencil It’s thick and it’s grey It is heavy and dark, Sending all remaining light away.
My original form is a pure dazzling paper, Yet The struggles of life are staining layer after layer. I’m light! Smeared in colors of orenge and red Spiraling rainbows of potential Bottled up in my heart, in my head, Giggling, playful, longing for the spark That will let it all free, let it light up the dark.
So now I’m lighting my Hanukkiah And keeping in mind That the true wick I’m lighting Is deep deep inside All it needs is my awareness Of how its coverd and stained And – WOW what an awesome Glow will soon be retained!
