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 ...

Newly Born

As soon as I came out
I wanted to stand on all fours,
Wobbly at first, being new on the scene.
Am I strong enough to run, jump and play well with the others I see?
Already I see that my spots are different from them,
Am I unique?
Is it ok to be different from them?
Wow look at all those who came before me,
How beautiful, the way they stand with proudness and antlers as trophies.
