Hiding Behind The Shadow - Poem by Roshan Roy

Only if the sun sets
Only if the silence spreads
Shall I come into existence
Only if the flowers shed
Only if the wise lose their head
Shall I sing in joy
Only if the judge is none
Only if the doer is one
Shall I become the leader
Only if the voices fade
Only if their hands be dead
Shall I get a warmer chair
Only if their eyes be blind
Only if their tastes be useless
Shall I become the glorious flower
Only if the survivor is one
Only if the talents are burnt
Shall my work be glorified
Only if the sun sets
Only if the light fades
Shall I glow like the moon.
