The Man in White
Your birth will set kingdoms ablaze.
You are mankind’s fire.
With these empty pages I change the world.
Hear your name.
For it is hallowed.
NOTE: I should explain here that while this poem can be read in many different ways on many different levels (such as showing how a person shapes his or her destiny as they see fit – thus the pages are empty and the narrator’s name hallowed – and that it is easy to be lied to if you are being read a book without words without actually seeing the book for yourself. I’m not even touching on the religious aspects of the poem now). The main reason I wrote this poem, however, is because it touches a subject linking project 1 & 2 (my first and second novel). I wonder why I chose to write it now and not later when Project 2 is published but I guess I want my readers to have some kind of advantage when reading my actual published work later on.
