That good night

That good night

Do indeed go gently into that good night

for the shining presence of Light

triggers the end of an age-old, senseless fight –

and turns all time’s wrong to right.

Why avoid that one Heavenly flight?

Avoid the night, avoid the right

that bathes your debatable existence,

your very being in eternal luminescence…


Avoid the darkness?

Is it not there that the glowing is so much more visible,

aiding you to bypass the abyss..?

Do indeed go gently into that good night,

and shine…


fiercely blaze your Light.

that good night - blaze your light
