The Candle




Am I the candle
burning myself but I'm glad
there's light for others

*This is just an impromptu Haiku. As I logged in my blog, the sudden thought came to mind and I immediately penned it. *

  1. Hello Balqis.
    Giving to others, while "burning", is really such an unselfish thing to do.
    People like you will always be there for others, no matter what.
    Great knowing you.

    1. Thanks for the applause. You know, I might not be the candle. It's a thought of how would it be if I were. Imagination in the playground of my mind. You could relate it in any way. Thanks again. :)

  5. wow Balqis it is a nice haiku *clap claps*
    when some of us enter into our own furnace in our lives..we may question why these trials should happen..but at the later part we realize that these things where meant to happen for us to be a living testimony..a light..to other people..I can say I am that candle in my own little way *wink*..gudnyt sis ;)

  7. Giving light to others and seeing them shine again help us overcome our pains. Some people are like this Balqis, giving always no matter what happen to them. May they all be blessed and may we remember all the candles spreading light around us so our days are never totally dark.
    Beautiful Balqis, truly beautiful.
