    As a candle of life I was formed from the wax of generations before
    This wax contained the shapes and rainbow of colors from every candle that burned in my past
    Some of these candles burned bright others burned dim and flickered in the night
    From this eclectic combination of candles I came to be
    The duration and intensity of my light is determined by the quality of wax that was used to form my candle
    As time would pass my wick would grow strong and my ancient of candles would ad a dab of wax here and there to shape my form
    The intensity of my flame has been determined by the other candles that I have witnessed burning in the dark of night
    Some have burned bright and shared there light while others burned dim and flickered in the night
    Some candles have burned high and bright for all to see and blown out at first winters breeze
    Other candles have appeared to be dimly lit yet have shared their flame with many smaller candles that have gone on to share this light with many more

    From the many candles that I have witnessed I have learned that no candle is invisible
    And each candle that burns changes the quality of light that shines from all the candles it touches
    Each candle touched will shine brighter or flicker and burn dim as a result of each and every inner candle contact.

    As a candle I would like to share and receive light that will strengthen my flame and the flame of all the other candles I see
    My candle may not light the world but if I share my light maybe I can spark the flame that changes the dark of gray to the light of day
    Lighting the way for the young candles to there destiny

    each one...

    teach one. know the inner strength you possess and pass on wisdom gained so that others may grow in strength and share with others. WELL SAID.

    let the river flow.
