The Ring of Fire

Image result for free images of a fire

There's a ring of fire worn unspoken
A little candle at first it burns a blazing flame
Once the wax melts it fights a dying chance
Of burning off the wick its flames once brazen
Somewhere in that circumference
Lies three notes of wisdom :-

- The candle has a short life once the wick is lighted
- Only the length its saving grace
- Once the wax melts the fire diminishes

The wish of  the lighted candle
is to burn and try to outlive the ever blazing wish of the flame
but no matter how it tries, it becomes a prisoner of the fire
It gives light albeit a short lived one
And with the death of the fire, its existence is no more

Just as in life, you can be a lighted candle
With a short time to burn a bright fulfilling life
Or look to be the fire that destroys in an ever charring claim
And be the ugly reflection of unrecognizable remains.
