Candle In The Wind

Relentless, determined and resolute.. I am like a candle in the wind!

The human heart is indeed a dark place

Filled with despair, anguish, jealousy; not shown on the face.

Shadowing and enveloping every living being

Making lives full of suffering.

I sat in front of the Altar, silently

Thinking about this sadness, gloomy and sadly.

What can I do to dispel this darkness

And fill the world with joy and happiness.

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

I sat in solitude, yet brimming with confidence

Amidst all the agonizing disturbance.

I kept gazing at the candle shining so bright

Despite the wind trying to put out it’s light.


In a moment something struck my mind

Felt like the world’s best thing, I did find.

Candle in the wind, that’s what I would be

To enlighten the heart of humanity.


I may be put out by the storm, wind or rain

But I would light up again and again.


I would be a candle in the wind
