Life is like a tiny flame
Dancing on a candle top
Gently burning the wick away
Until the wax is gone

But the tears of a dark raincloud
Or a sudden, forceful breeze
Can make this fire flicker out
For this flame is fragile, see

So worry not how long it lasts
Since all candles end the same
The fire is burning very fast
And there is no time to waste

Be the flame that warms the night
To thaw the hearts of others
Be the flame that gives off light
So shadows turn to cowards

And be the flame that braves the wind
While igniting countless sparks
Shining with a fervid glint
To lead others from the dark

Submitted this for my school's literary journal. I hope it gets accepted! :D

Really good symbolism and comparison :) I don't think I've read anything that compares someone to a tiny, TINY flame.

Thanks! And large flames tend to destroy, but small flames are harmless.

this reminds me of my older sister's poetry! On an unrelated note, can we submit anything to the journal? And when is it due, because I want to submit a scary story.
