The Dance of Expression

lit candle

As a candle’s light dances against darkness,
my actions play upon the image I portray.

Choreographed by circumstance,
purpose provides the wick.

The shape of my character is the sculpted wax,
fostering the flame.

Rising above reaction,
I become an inextinguishable candle.

Self is the shadow expression illuminates.
