Imagination is better than Knowledge - Albert Einstein
One day you're in the next you're out
Live like you're at the bottom even if you're at the top

The candle is lit

I am ancient
Grandfather lights his pipe
Witches are burned
My story is told

I am a destroyer
Flames floating towards the sky
Torches everywhere
Buildings tumbling to the ground

I am pain
Lives being taken away
Death awaiting
Bodies melting from my heat

I am life
Being reborn
Created to a new beginning

I am warmth
Fireplace logs crackle
Smores begin to melt
Sitting so close it feels like a sauna

I am an igniter
Sweaty hands
Two hearts are sparked
Passion burning

A simple candle
Light emitting its glow
Blow me out
I am no more

My story is over
