Poetry Corner: “Personal Flame”

Jack Low, Contributing Writer

When you were born you were given a candle 

A candle no one else can see 

Unless they look into your eyes and see those flames dancing around 

This candle will tell you who you are and what your strengths and weaknesses consist of. 

Keep your candle safe and don’t blow it out

Your candle is a special part of your life 

Take it with you and keep it warm.

Explore the unknown and never forget your capabilities 

You never know what could come your way.

Keep your candle lit and your head high

Be the person who you were meant to be.
