Wick

lighted candle

If someone gave you a flame
in an otherwise dark world,
what would you do with it?

Would you keep it safe, hidden from others,
taking it out only from time to time?

I say, use it to light your way
to the desperate wicks of others
and give them hope.

The flame can go on forever but not on your wick alone.
