Hope:

Hope is like a candle

It burns like a flame

And will continue

To burn until you

Let it die.

There are those times in life

When you just want to blow it out

And wax the last bit of wax

Drip away.

But you keep going because

That candle isn't dieing anytime soon

And you know that because you just

Can't give up.

You can't let your only light burn out.

You can't let darkness consume you

Like it has the rest of your world.

So you take that candle

And create a fire

That could burn down all the forests in the world.

Then,

You act,

While never letting the fire burn out.
