A lone candle locked away
Where noone sees its light
Its only crime to burn diff'rently
And within human sight.

A lone candle locked away
None understand its plight
It's locked away, it can't be seen
Yet continues to burn bright.

A lone candle locked away
For air it has to fight
It only spoke out, voiced its opinion
Burned how it thought right.

A lone candle locked away
Wax drips to left and right
How long has passed? It cannot tell
There's not a clock in sight.

A lone candle locked away
Feels it has the blight
No friendly faces to be seen
Only its own small light.

A lone candle locked away
Resolves when its free to fight
Against all such injustices
For those in similar plight.

A lone candle burning bright
Escaped shows the shole world its light
Shining out for those with the courage
To fight for what they believe right.
