Light the Future

Is it that you want what you feel you do not deserve

what you did not earn

what you did not work hard enough for

through all the trials and tribulations

the pain and agony you experienced

the abuse and stress, the insults and disrespect

you think you are still unworthy of brighter days

in front of you lies the doorway

in front of you lies the path

you have the candles in one hand

in the other, you have the match

whether you choose to move forward

disperse the darkness, the shadows, the mystery that lies in the black

in the metaphor, remove the regret, the shame, the doubt

strike the match and use this light and positive outlook to press on

do not give more fuel to the fire of the past life

your time there is done

just as a candle wick burns lower as time marches on

march forward with purpose to open that door

where the brightness of joy stays on

your face, your smile, your glow that you carry with you daily

your pride and your security that you will embrace strongly

move forward through the hurdles from your past

lighting your way in to your future

allowing the candle to be your guide

to the future in which you wish to reside.
