Lıght A Candle

To the plain eyes this is a mere candle…

perhaps merely for decor or perhaps to infuse
a romantic feeling …
but to me, a lit candle symbolises more than this …
it symbolises hope and Courage …
new beginnings …
Many times we are knocked down by life’s
happenings that render us hopeless and discouraged …
depressed perhaps …
to say the least …
it could be a lost job, a relationship ending …
a friend’s betrayal …
we hold on to the pain and stay disillusioned
and miss out on life, walking around carrying
the burden, hurt and betrayal in our hearts
forgetting perhaps ,this has to end for a new one
to start and perhaps the new one is what’s really
meant for you …
but the fear of starting all over again stops us dead
in our tracks …
stops us from going for what’s really meant for us …
the fear of the unknown, the fear of what’s
on the other side …
unless we take that step of faith, unless we wear
our brave boots …
we will never know, won’t we?
And how sad it would be when we take our last breathe
and wonder what we could have found on the other side …
No matter how scary it is, take a leap of faith and
light a candle, bellieve that if the job was really for you,
you wouldn’t have lost it,
believe if the person was so for you they wouldn’t cause
you endless pain, believe that the friend had to betray you
for you to realise they weren’t who you thought they were …

let them carry that burden of their deeds while you light a candle
and let it symbolise the fire in you that won’t go out …

I

f the wind blows it out you light it up again and keep pushing at the game of life !
