Light A Candle - Poem by Aminath Neena

You, light a candle in your heart

Fill your soul with the brightness of its visage
Let not this world be a selfish mirage

Let them kill your roseate dreams
Ignore your poignant pleas
Squash your path in mud
Drench the innocent in blood

But you, light a candle in your heart

Fill your soul with the brightness of its visage
Let not this world be a selfish mirage


Let them spill out the venom
Attack the one without any weapon
Destroy your precious homes
Ruin your auspicious hopes

But you, light a candle in your heart

Fill your soul with the brightness of its visage
Let not this world be a selfish mirage

Let them smudge your garments
With their gratuitous comments

Let them do all the damage
While they can still rampage

But you, light a candle in your heart

Fill your soul with the brightness of its visage
Let not this world be a selfish mirage

Let them create havoc in the land
But this you must understand
Surely you will overcome this phase
For, the oppressed move closest to God's space

Until then, light a candle in your heart

Fill your soul with the brightness of its visage
Let not this world be a selfish mirage

And if not a candle, a tiny spark
Will definitely, drive away the darkness at large.
