The Best Poem Of Jeffrey Mitchell

A Candle

Trying to keep my flame
But it’s hard where you placed me, in a house
With many drafts
Flicker, flicker while I sway from side to side
Casting shadows of my flame dancing on the walls
Surrounded in darkness
My flame dancing from a gust of wind

On a ledge I sit
On top of a fire place mantel
To bring light inside a room
But in the corners where the darkness dwells
Eyes are watching my flame being tossed, to and fro
From a relentless wind

I am trying to keep my flame
In a place where I’m not wanted
Above the darkness I stare down

From a fire place mantel
Flickering and swaying to and fro
Hoping not to go out

Jeremiah 29: 11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
