Set It Aflame

We lie in the dark so we may not be seen
We whisper our words so we may not be heard
We hide in this room with just hopes and dreams
An idea in mind that’s been put into words
And soon we escape from this wretched room
We batter the door down and we see the sun
We leave behind all others darkness and gloom
Defeated them all and now we have won
And so we return years later again
To see what exactly our room became
And as we walk into the room that we left
We throw down the torch and we set it aflame

love and love- THE moon shines in my body, but my blind eyes cannot see it: The moon is within me, and so is the sun...//

It would be wonderful to see all the poems of Kabir, of Richard Wilbur, all 1700 some of Emily Dickinson, all the poems in the 90 volumes of the Mahabharata ... added. I would be happy to be a volunteer.
