A Metaphoric poem

Insulated in a glass bulb
resisting flow of electrons
the tungsten filament
is white hot emitting light.

So pleasant bright light
cutting the darkness
making our lives bright
is a forced sacrifice.

The filament is forced
in burning white-hot
and giving us the light
until it is burnt out.
