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.
