The Bulb of Faith

Voiced by Samuel Rubadiri
“I am the light of the world. 
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
 but will have the light of life.”
-John 8:12- 
 The bulb burnt out.
 The world that shone
 has lost its exuberance,
 and all that's left is hypocrisy.
 I’m not so much giddy
 as compared to my melancholy
 because the light in my world;
 the bulb burnt out.
 Jesus doesn’t satisfy.
 Church is a guise.
 My family is drowning
 in the fermented fruits to this truth.
 I see why the water
 became the wine
 losing its purity to the
 corrupted community of life.
 I’ve come to know this scarlet drink.
 It’s my blood, my outlook,
 my reflection, my life,
 as a grape left out to rot.
 Outpoured, miraculously transformed,
 the innocent conceives sin
 as dark as his glass to realise
 his bulb burnt out.
