Maurice Rowlands


Run To The Light


Follow the path
Keep running
Don’t look back

The deer, the hare and the stallion
Are running alongside you

The Muslim woman
She is barefoot running alongside you

Keep a track of your footsteps
And keep running

The spaceman on the moon
Is running alongside you

Across the Sahara Desert
Through the English meadow
Along the Great Wall of China

They are running alongside you

The hunted fox
The harpooned whale
The rhino with the stolen horn

The Third World mother
Who has seen her children starve

They are all running alongside you

Run faster

Run with the cheetah
Across the vast savannas of Africa

Run to the light
Don’t fight

Run

They are all running alongside you

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
