Northen Lights - Poem by Daniel Richards

In this world we’re nought but dancers,
We miss the angels and clasp only playthings
We treat each other in scores of separate ways
It’s us that put my soul in jeopardy

You are my nemesis and my brethren
A fact which discombobulates every emotion
Should I stand next to your fire or,
Shoulder to shoulder as one?

I’m a flower and you are my rain
And back to you it’s probably the same
Will we ever connect in ways that set the heart?
Not the world ablaze?

We set out with dreams to accomplish utopia
But quickly are they dashed
Set afire by uncontrolled emotions
And we are blanketed again

Blinded by self, our ego steps outside as us
What is it, which stands even further in our way?
It’s a question which will forever remain

As we live in the heat of the night and not the light of day
We forget that what is given can also be taken away
If we could live in the light of the day and not the heat of night

We could remove anything that stands in our way
And find the sign post, that will lead us away
From the art temptation and deception
Unto the path of peaceful ways

And the lost dream, our conception of utopia
Will be allowed to unfurl into reality
And like a halo the northern lights shine again and again
Forever like me us the rose the sun and the rain

It and everything will remain like the stars in the sky
And the flickering of flame,
Ecstasy will be allowed to reign dispatch power from its throne
We all be kings and queens in these days of our own

All we need to do is see the value of life
The power of dreams, hope and maybe with faith
And a hearts promise we will take the first steps today
Let’s all be the rose for the sun and rain
