The Candle - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan
Life is like a burning candle
The longer it burns the lesser of it remains
Until we are snuffed out
Into the dark oblivion.
So our movement forward
Is also a backward retreat,
And all our accumulated gains
Shall sum up our loss -
Isn't life, for sure, my friend
A bitter-sweet paradox? !
