Smile and Burn

Money does not buy happiness.
A smile can’t stop the rain.
But when you’ve confronted the past,
You can smile through the pain.

A smile isn’t an umbrella.
Peace isn’t purchased with cash.
Happiness is burning down hate
And rising from the ash.

So take this fire,
And beat those wings.
Fan these flames.
Embrace the change it brings.

Candles

Moths are drawn
To the flickering light
But who isn’t
In the deepest night
Drawn to:
Hope
Friendship
Fire?

Burning a candle
At both ends
Sounds delightful!
Where are the matches?
