A Candle

A Candle

A candle.

A small fire.

Burning brightly

in a world full of darkness,


closed doors,

and mean faces.

A fire.

Trying to stay lit.

Trying to give warmth in the coldness

Trying to find fuel

to stay lit.

Everyone has a candle


deep inside them.

A place with warm faces

and open arms.

where everyone can belong.

A place with enough fuel

to help others have their candle lit.

But sometimes

the darkness takes over.

And the light is gone.



Turned down.

No place to stay.

All hope vanished.

Like the candle.

Weird looks.


With no warmth to continue.


In the darkness.


There will be a candle.

Who finds an extinguished candle

It will give the candle food.

And help it get lit.

Until the candles

are not candles.

But are instead…


Illuminating the sky.

Helping other candles.
