As Coded Signal - Poem by Doris Cornago

As a firefly burns in the night
I'm part of an army of light
We've come from places
Undisclosed faces
We know hurts
Balled in
Soon bursts in
Flames spreading
Thru as coded signal
Come hither my comrades
Darkest night, burning forests

Poet's Notes about The Poem

When we see injustice done right on our doorsteps, even to strangers, we feel violated as if it's being done to us. The violation of human rights is palpable everywhere and it's being done by governments. There is a divine entity/force who watches and will extract vengeance when the time is ripe. Watch out for the sign.: -)

    This is not a call to arms but a call for expression of self against inhumane acts. To light the way in the darkness: -) (Report) Reply
