Title or question

[center]a flame flickering not much might
Shrouded and obscured
just a small flare of light
A small breeze threatens to exstinguish the fight
With a full sky of star's covering the night
The full moon dances so very bright
Fade to black
say goodnight
Exstingquish yourself
flame in the night.

Good writing. The gift of words heals the wounded souls.

@Miram i don't wish for anyone to have a wounded soul, if it helps i am happy to have the connection.

@Arorin I have always found it irritating how some think there needs be suffering for purpose to be created. The happiest people I have ever known are completely innocent and have simple lives, isolated from the world and its ways.
Suffering does give wisdom. But at what cost? Not all suffering is worth it me thinks.
One reason I like this poem is because it lacks the quick knee jerk reaction of imaginary happy endings. And you're right that's it is connecting. It is standing in the crossroad accepting uncertainty never looking away.
Humans are inconsistent beings. They are contradictory mirroring the inconsistencies of our world. Even while I reject the idea of lessons in suffering, I know that's a lesson in itself.
I hope life will be kind to you and your loved ones.

@Miram when i wrote this in my head i had a picture of sleeping under the stars next to a camp fire. I too think the simple life is where i find the most happy people. No TV no media just living with nature and the world providing what is needed. I appreciate your kind words to me but unfortunately my life has been a tragic one. My real story is long and it is hard full of nasty things and abuse. I was 3 years old with the thoughts of not wanting to be alive because of my mom and it never did get easier or better. As we are today my grandma has cancer and im taking care of her. I dont sleep very much i am just trying to do what is right. She is about the last of my family left.
