A lighthouse

So I was spending time I shouldn’t on Facebook today, when I came across a meme that a friend of mine had posted, which along with some horrifically awful art, asked, “Who are you? Try answering without your name, job, or things you’ve done.” To which I thought for a very long time, and finally said, “A lighthouse.” But this is really just a small part of the first line of what was bubbling in my brain, the rest of which follows below.

I am a lighthouse
Shining for the lost
Easy to find if you’re looking
Solid on my spit of land

The ocean wore away the path back
But it’s still there
Under the water
The trusting can find it

I won’t come save you
I’m not a hero
But I’m here
Always here
To guide you home
