" farewell, best of luck, avoid roasted cabbages, don't eat earwax, and look on the bright side of life!"- Angela from Eldest by Christopher Paolini

Lighting a candle

Watching it slowly burn

Hypnotizing to the eye

It flickers, twists and turns

Orange and yellow

The glow is warm

Even though it is small

It fills the room

With a sense of calm

And as shadows dance across the wall

Your eyes are bright

The flame stays strong

You embrace the warmth

The comforting flow

Of energy traveling

To and fro

Hope is like a candle

Lighting your way

Even through the darkest hallway

It keeps one calm

It makes one think

It helps one rise

After it sank

Hope is the light

The one that always burns bright

The one that helps you see

Who you are

Where you belong

When the time is right

It is energy

It is purpose

And it helps you see through the night

Hope is there
