Be Like A Candle (By Zain of the Words Apart poetry group)

Be like a Candle

Be Like a candle…
Light up faces with a smileAnd spread warmth when you walk,Speak purity all the whileAnd beauty when you talk
He told me be like a Candle,
The flip side of a sandal orflip flops when it hits the dustKnowledge merely a particleas we promote trust
And expect nothing in return,Each day passes we earn and learnDon’t count your blessings..Store them..
Be like a candle,
selfless like an anti-consumerist society,Shelf-lessDon’t be restless, patience, control your mindHasten.Rather than chasing 360 and get called dizzee
Be like a candle,
Noor in the darkness,Sense amongst the senseless,Like the only ethnic in the censusDirection for the headless
We’re Chickens on the coup,Fear, as we wait for the military cooDon’t be scaredThrow your shoe at a dictator. Mubarak
Give like a candle gives light,Live the way your soul deserves to liveBe a freedom writer, free-writer, free runner
Keep your candle alight, don’t survive,Fight from an unjust night to a blessed dawn
Be like a candle,
Some Inherit worldly riches but still remain impoverishedWashed away, quashed and lost
As Human kind compete to becomeSomethingBut Rich lists don’t recognize the price compared to human life isNothing
But eventually
Our light and warmth will turn to smoke andAscend to judgementFrom tar filled smog to a beautiful incenseAll depending on the intent
Until that unexpected, unknown end,Simply, Be Like a Candle.
