The darkness surrounds but the flame within provides just enough light.
How darkness threatens to overtake me

The foreboding presence that lingers around

A black panther waiting to pounce upon thee

A dark sky forming shadows over ground

But the everlasting flame burns inside

Neither does it burn too hot nor too cold

Like an infant sunrise frozen in time

Enough light breaking the grip darkness holds

Frozen yet fantastically set ablaze

Mighty winds, whose team is adversity

Threaten, rooting for stillness of no flame

May it waiver back and forth possibly

Like a drunken sailor while out to sea

Yet the flame within stays lit guarding me
