Conversations with Poets

note: send me a note if its ok to put your name up

if one finds themselves often in darkness
could it be that they are the only light to others around them
could it be that those lost in the darkness are truly not aware of why they do what they do
are they simply drawn to the light
yearning for a piece or just to bask in it for a time
perhaps they are not even conscious of why they do what they do
how they steal and run away with it like a thief
selfishly devouring it
if we are the light in darkness then let us shine for all that we are
let us not fear
for in us dwells true freedom and the salvation for others
let us not wimper
let the only tears that appear be of baptism
the only cries that of victory great or small
if we are the light
then let us not go quietly into that good night...
if we are the darkness
then let us be brave
let us linger
let us remain as close to the light as we can
let us not be a thief
let us not fear getting burned
let us welcome it
it may mean losing ourselves
who we are
all we know
but so what
arent we lost already
and when we do ignite
in flames
in defiance
free of the dark
surely we will set even the darkest night on fire
yes
even if we are the darkness
let us not go quietly into that good night...
