Rating: 3.8
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;

My take on this blindingly unforgettable poem that I've remembered and found inspiring in moments of personal uncertainty - for some strange reason, is...I don't care what people say or think of me for the way I live my life, I intend to live it to the full, regardless of the consequences, and by accounts...she did just that! . So fair play to her. Check out the beautiful Recuerdo. Peace Up.

interesting metaphor of a candle that burns at both ends.. it doesn't last for long, but this way it's twice as brightly than a normal one..

in ITALIAN: Primo Fico La mia candela brucia da entrambi i lati; Non durerà oltre la notte; Ma vi dirò, miei nemici, e anche a voi, amici miei— Dona una bella luce.
