When the black hole of despair

casts a shadow

and threatens to devour

the light of joy

that outshines a thousand stars

you won’t need him,

the knight in shining armor,

who rides on his white charger

to heroically save the maiden fair.

For there are no more dragons

The one is enough.

The one next door.

The unassuming little man

who seeks to banish the darkness

with the light of one lone candle.

The one who says:

“I am your friend.

Let me help.”
