Scaring Away the Dark with my Glow in the Dark-ness

Looking-under-the-bed-250x187Not looking for monsters under my bed
or skeletons in my closet.
I’m looking around.
Trying to make my deposit.

Bring the light over here.
There’s darkness all around,
Being loud, Being bold,
Shouting down, I can’t be told.

No need to raise my voice,
The darkness nearest me
Is within whispering distance,
It can hear me,
It can see me.
Because I glow in the dark.

Glow-bracelttsNot a flashlight,
Not a cell phone,
Not a glow stick,
Or a ghost.
I’m a natural phenomenon.
No need to flip my switch.

Not an app,
or a fossil fuel,
My power’s clean,
got a renewable source.

Tech can’t touch me,
Dark can’t quench me,
Solar powered,
I’m on course.

Glow-In-the-Dark-Jar-Experiment-201206251-SummerScienceI can radiate
into any darkness,
any pain.
I’m not afraid.

Don’t want to clench it,
Don’t want to hold it,
Can’t outrun it,
It’s closing in.

I just wanna bring my glow,
into depths and canyons,
places dim
and dark
and cold.

?

With the sunrise, I’ll
fuel up again,
warmth and welcome
making me
bold.

I’ve got a Son-powered fuel source,
free for the asking,
the Man who deals it,
He’s my best friend.

It’s no secret,
No need to hide it,
I blend nicely
in the light of day.

Only when dusk comes,
and darkness moves on in,
When the monsters creep,
I come out, too,

glow-in-the-dark-shoesCan’t quite believe it,
But hey, look and see!
My fingertips, they’re alight!
Not only that,
but so is the
rest of me!

Darkness hides its eyes,
Monsters shrink away,
Quivering, quaking,
fear overtaking.
Run away,
coward,
go.
