Candle

A Poem by Mazie Tackett

Life is a candle,
Burning bright and warm.
If it drops,
Fire will spread.
Life is a candle,
Melting slowly away.
A once beautiful flame
Dies away over night,
Leaving hardened wax behind.

This is a good write!

"Life is a candle,
Burning bright and warm.
If it drops,
Fire will spread."

...I like this part, it just shows how fragile like can be. Holding the candle steady is great and will light your way but, drop it, and everything can fall (burn) apart.
Great job! Keep writing!! :)
