Symbolism of a candle
The burning flame of a candle. A symbol of ongoing peace, hope and faith. A source of light and warmth. I stare at the candle burning away on my benchtop. I feel a mixture of disappointment, sadness, and fear for the future outside my home walls with so much ongoing unrest, arguments and disputes. Yet, I struggle to understand the arguments, the resistance, the stupidity. My candle is going out. Must we destroy everything?
