The Candle

Poem: The Candle

by Liam

At times I’m deep and dreary

I’ve also known despair

A shadow lives around the corner underneath the stairs

Those fingers curling, surge and grab

Taking laughter from all things

That’s how my freedom, lost its wings.

But one things true, I found in me

We’re not alone, not even in the dark

For beating deep inside, a candle is my heart

It’s towards this candle sometimes,

With shuffling heavy tread

I search the dark in this lost night before I go to bed

It’s all I have to search for

A tiny flame of hope

Imbued with light and grown within that place to which I grope

Sneaking around the corner,

The morning wakes and I

Rub my eyes, stretch my arms for today I’ll learn to fly

With it, find I meaning

Lonely though I may be

It’s from that candle in the dark but I will set me free.
