Best Poem of Daniel Nairn

The Boy With Fire In His Eyes

The boy with fire in his eyes
Stands there waiting.
It is his soul inside;
It keeps him standing.

And if ever the fire goes out,
He will freeze in the cold.
It is his heat
And all that keeps him living.

Or if it never is put to use,
It will consume him;
He will burn to the ground
His ashes left behind.

But if the fire blazes,
If kindled, kept and carried,
If the boy with fire in his eyes
Finds life inside that fire,

His fire will light the world,
Will pierce the mist,
A fire to drive the dark away
Forever and ...

Communication

Why can't the words I say mean what
I meant to say to you that time?
You heard my voice, but not my mind.
Those words I said: I meant them not!

I can't explain what happens where,
Inside my soul, the thoughts are chained
To cold and concrete walls of pain.
I long to free them from despair.
