A Lit Life

So many candles are lit in me
Impossible to extinquish
Oh, and mankind has tried
I have cried my tears
And tears for others
I have been on my knees
Like a supplicant
Beseeching, pleading
For release
But the candlelight
Just becomes brighter
Fueled by sorrow
It seems

These are the candles
of hope, of awe
Of joy, of expectancy,
Of curiosity, of love
Of trust, of enthusiam
Of wishes and dreams

...of life just wanting to live
