Poetry

A flame in the dark

You see the darkness all around me :
The dragons of desolation that would make warriors flee,
The deserted plain that loneliness fears,
The mournful howls that demons are afraid to hear.
And you wonder, and wonder again,
How I manage to shine in the rain !

Your vision misses the bright flame
That glows in me, just the same;
Without a flicker, without doubts,
Irrespective of any scenario that sprouts.
A scented candle burning with passion,
Sweet sunshine dazzling my mansion.
The fire of indomitable will,
Forceful rays under which the universe stills !
