In every soul resides a latent light
Yet not all lights can themselves light
For every light needs a light
To help them light up their own latent light

And no man would work nor walk at night

No light fights another light
Cause in the deep deadly dark night
Every light finds a space to shine bright
And help little latent lights to find light

For the more number of lights at night
The brighter the luminous light
And the farther away from the light
Darkness disappears into the dark night.
