What is it?

What is it?
What is that ray in the dark tunnel keeping me going
And illuminating an unseen destination?

What is it?
What is it that wakes me up every morning
And mesmerizes me into dreams?

What is it?
What is it that the sun rises for
And the stars gleam for?

What is it?
What is it that moves my right in front of my left
And pushes my left ahead of my right?

What is it?
What is that my fingers dispatch from their slumber for
And my toes tingle for?

What is it?
What is it that water pours down for
And rivers flow for?

What is it?
What is it that light reflects back for
And sights straighten out for?

What is it?
What has it given me?
What has it taken from me?

What is it?

It’s something I cannot see
That enlightens me
Something that I cannot breathe
That sustains me
