Fire Flies - Poem by Halsho Zangana

Those fireflies around the lantern...
They know their fate.
yet, they are in haste
to burn and waste
themselves for warmth!

They tell the story of a lost poet,
that binds his days,
which like theirs are short,
just to make a slot
for his need and must,
to deliver his theme,
which is to consume himself,
to ignite his dream.
