your light is massive,
expansive in its source,
yet being human keeps it dim,
hides away the greatness,
the vastness of the being inside.
Where you fan the flame
the world attempts to put it out,
until it smolders in silence,
sometimes for decades,
often an entire life,
drowned by the ashes of its overcoming.
So then, your quest is to find your fire,
douse it with the fuel of Love –
the only energy which the world cannot obscure,
the only source which cannot be burned up
in the combustion of humanity
