To wake man and society,

Words light the way, as man's lantern.

    Through poetry we do narrow man's view of what we are writing of, in a way. We cause the reader to focus on our message in each poem. We light the way as a lantern, leading the reader to see what we see through our poetry. Excellent poem, wonderful imagery all leading us to think along these lines. Thank you for sharing.
