Your life pursuit,
To light your candle and to,
Keep that ember burning,
In the face of,
All inner and outer resistance,
Not to allow that candle,
To be snuffed out.
This candle is your soul, it feels wonderful,
When it’s lit. You will find a way.
There will come a day when your,
Light will burn, bright and clear
You will be the guardian,
The keeper of this light. It is your duty.
No one else may care,
But that doesn’t matter,
They don’t need to, it’s not their job.
You will learn this.
Others may or may not notice,
Your burning ember.
This doesn’t matter either.
Your warmth still touches them,
And warms your own heart,
Through all troubling times,
Both personal and collective.
