Burnt at Both Ends

There they go
There they went
Who knew
Life was like a candlestick

Bright and vibrant when awake
Dark when rest time comes
Changing shape with each passing day
Getting worn out
By the people who use you to light their way

They’ll be greedy
Burning you as much as they like
They’re not evil or bad
Just misguided and maybe sad

They aren’t good for you though
You have your own path to light
Don’t let the burnt out tell you it’s right
Burn more slowly

Do it with a smile
So that your flame shines
To light your way
Not wearing you out
