Candles Illuminate to Die

A candle illuminates
To stop the darkness unfold
The candle burns
The wax melts
Drops trickle down
Maybe the candle has been purified
Or, fire burnt its goodness away
The exposure is difficult
But every candle knows-
It has to die
Why don’t we devote ourselves for others
And then close our eyes.

-Aastha
