Poem – I Am Just a Candle

I am just a candle

On top of a cake waiting to be eaten

Here to fulfill other people’s wishes

Unable to live for myself

Stuck in place until snatched

From the sweetness

Never being able to taste it

My warmth comes with a price

To give and never receive

For I am just a candle

Sitting upon a cake

Only lit for one purpose

To be blown out
