Why Keep the Good Stuff All To Yourself?

Sustain the spark that you’ve kept dim,
Hidden by cupped hands in near prayer.
Candles are made to show light.

Clutching the embers to the chest
Sears the hands with selfish worry -
A burn touching more than the skin.

Instead set it out for others to see
With passion – your new lantern’s oil.
