Candlelight – Wildfires

by horngyih

In the dark,
one candle may stand,

illuminating a tiny circle,
of light around it.

It stands steadfast,
vigilant and silent.

Others will come,
drawn to its light,
to light their candle,
from its flame.

There are those,
who goes about,
lighting the candle
of others,
in the hopes
of spreading the light,
but those who don’t want it,
blows out the flame,
the light will not last.
There are yet still others,

who use the flame,
to ignite anything,
combustible,
setting the world ablaze,
in a wild fire,
that destroys all,
in its path.

If you have found,
your light,
stand steadfast,
vigilant and silent.
Others will come,
to light their candle,
from your flame,
and spread,
the light,
that will last.
