DESCRIPTION

Imagine a lone, unlit candle. Or even an unlit candle surrounded by a sea of others burning bright. There is something profound about the act of lighting a candle, it can provide comfort, hope, resolve, among many other things. An unburnt one on the other hand is cold, distant and stark. At least that is how I imagined it while writing this piece. It harbours frustrations, regrets and uncertainties I am sure many in a transitional point in their life can relate to. Questions about what is to come and what could have been.
