THEME FOR MAY AMP

THEME FOR MAY AMP

Hello there. In case you have not heard, we have decided to include an optional theme on which writers/artists/musicians can respond. For this month we are turning towards the concept of rebellion, of raising your voice against the majority.

“A riot is the language of the unheard.”
martin luther king jr.

So let your voices be heard!

You do not have to follow this theme but we are keeping it open for intepretation for anyone who wants to follow it.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night
Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave 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 it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with 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 that 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.
