‘All the darkness in this world
cannot put out a candle that is lit.’
So goes a Chinese proverb.
A ray of hope, they say,
can shatter all despair to irreparable pieces.
But where is the person to light the candle?
Who is the one to give me hope?
Candles are lit,
In the lives of thousands.
But here I am,
Waiting with a candle in hand
For someone to light it…
