Do Not Go Gently!


Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day:
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved in on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see the blinding sight,
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas.




He wrote this poem about getting old and how we should fight against it and not think we have to die quietly, but rage and live strongly. I think it can be used in any situation, like good vs. bad, we have to rage against the dying of the light (good) and keep out the darkness (bad). Everyone can apply this poem to their lives and be lights wherever they may be and not accept the darkness that tries to creep in and steal our sunshine away. Rage, rage against the dying of the light & the world, your world can be a much brighter place!
