A FLICKER IN THE DARK


A flicker in the dark
or just a tiny spark
can start a flame inside of you
that will make its mark.

This mark will keep you burning
and help to keep you yearning
to know the reason you were born.
That reason is for learning.


Why else would we dare enter
a place that at its center
is filled with too much sorrow in its core?
Thus, I am a dissenter.

I reject mainstream philosophy
and the principles of theocracy.
My ruler has always been my brain
which never brings hypocrisy.
