Each day is sacred.
Each day is special.
I know that.
Yet, there are some days
that I need to acknowledge this.
Today is one such day.
Today is that day
when my being naturally surrendered.
In that surrender, a love-journey began,
and I experienced the eruption of a love-flow.
A love that is not dependent on any materialistic thing.
A love that just flows effortlessly.
I never knew that such love existed,
but it does, for it is happening to me.
And then, reverence graced this love-relationship,
which lead to devotion. All this is new to me.
A sacredness has also entered this love-relationship.
I am in awe!
I bow to this love!
I honor this love!
You are more than just a merely lit candle flame who is waiting to take its last breath as it melts to death.
You are more than that melting wax which still glows for others knowing that it will die.
You are more than the base the candle resides, which helps it to stand knowing that the only gratitude it will receive is burns.
How can you being someone so perfect feel so insecure.
You are more than hot silver blade scarring with which you draw and the image turns red.
How can you be so loving but still hate your own guts.
How can you be so strong yet draw on your arms and watch the blood flow, yet be satisfied marking your imperfections.
You are not perfect.Your imperfections make you human.
You are the flame strong enough to make the world bright for the ones you love.
You are the wax with an iron heart who is melting but still standing strong.
You are more than the candle's base supporting a way to light the world.
You are beautiful human with your imperfections like a candle.
It has its good times and bad.
It shows us light in the dark and disappears leaving darkness in our hearts.
But as we say,everyone has their own way of seeing things.
You may compare yourself to the dying candle or the candle being a source of light.
You can be your own voice.
After all it's your choice. .

You seem to not care anymore
And I guess that's fine, it just leaves me sore
But what's the point in fighting to make them happy and stay
When they don't even notice when I've begun to slip away.
