The Candle

Where is the light at the end of the tunnel? 
They say that hope is found even in dark places. 
When all i feel is pain. 
The sorrows of the past have drowned me
Suffocating me with questions of what could have been, 
and what have i become? 

Where is the light at the end of the tunnel? 
Every candle needs to be lit. 
So before you go looking for the light. 

Look for the box of matches 
Hope can be found is dark places.
