Hope

20130522_233629

Sometimes hope is all one has.
What is to remain
when it has been snuffed out
like the flame of a candle?
Ironically – Darkness.

But the Spirit
does not wish
to live in anguish,
it does not desire
a state of melancholy.

Instead,
it hungers for the spark
of kindness.
Thirsts for encouragement
while seeking
the nourishment of love.

Be the one
who fans the candle’s flame.
