Always look for hope and never give up on your faith.

The Eternal Flame

By Jim Stewart, c 2004

There is a fire that burns within me

An eternal flame

It poes as a reminder

Of what once was.

There is a scar over these memories

which tries to mask the wound.

But, still I try to find this fire

Seeking the truth and justice.

Oh, how this haunts me.

To be able to smell

the burning embers

Yet, never find the source. The desire to achieve peace within

Brings on an internal struggle.

A struggle with reality.

No, the scars and pain are real.

But Just knowing that there is a flame

Keeps the hope alive.





Eternal Flame

This is so lovely-even though the flame eludes us sometimes all of our life. The search gives us the hope.

Spiritually uplifting piece, well said...
