“1000”

One thousand broken light bulbs.
The dullen drone of your past
failures in a darkened room.
Then, the one that stays lit.
Oh yes.
And that's it.
One thousand lessons learned
on the way to success.
There is a light
in each of us
that will never burn out
if you just build the courage
to search through the dark.
