We live in the dark.
We’re the lovers of the night.
From the shadows of our mind,
We peek out & wonder at your magnificent light.
And what a magical sight!
To see you fight, the orthodox minds.
A champion of your own rights.
Fearless amongst the timid,
Alive amongst the wishful beings.
Capering gracefully through the societal conventions.
What is it if not courage?
You live in the chaotic centre of things.
While we, the conformist cowards, try to merge.
Taming our wild sides through secret, unnoticed acts.
Hanging in the adjoining vestibules closer to our exit routes.
And when we’re too tired of our fake facades,
We get drunk & hallucinate what real freedom will feel like.
True. It’s a very limited life.
But we, in our naïveté, mistake it as a price of a peaceful one.
Hiding in our closets pretending the world isn’t on fire.
Stuck in our own illusions.
So don’t, for a minute think, that you need to change.
It’s we, who need to give up our shadows
and fight for the light we all equally want.
