I'm All I've Got

I must write 
To save my soul,
Set fire to the threats
Of a foreign invasion...
I must maintain homogeneity 
Of the mind, body, heart..
Be true to the village 
Where my mind grew
And my heart flourished..
I must write to preach
And spin along
My own axis,
Like a blue ball of water and life,
Independent of the galaxies and stars
That cast threatening shadows
Over my innocent plans,
Over my harmless dreams,
And over my lofty ambitions--
Lest they grow bigger
Than the constellations
And dictate their own astrology...

I must be my own sun,
I must be my own moon,
For there will never be another...
