What is this verse tapping me on the shoulder?
Like the cold wind blowing…
it opens the windows of my mind,
to reveal the secrets of centuries past
to learn the wisdom in kind.
Yet we hesitate to share what feels like magic to our souls..
it is enough to keep it to ourselves
but we must, for that is our path.
Tis why we are here to raise the lantern and be the light
for all those we lead so they may follow and one day serve
as the harbinger of right.
And to fight the good fight.
When we are gone and memories fade,
but our spirit sighs
at the goodness we made,
to save the world from certain death.
