First Fig

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light.

My take on this blindingly unforgettable poem that I've remembered and found inspiring in moments of personal uncertainty - for some strange reason, is...I don't care what people say or think of me for the way I live my life, I intend to live it to the full, regardless of the consequences, and by accounts...she did just that! . So fair play to her. Check out the beautiful Recuerdo. Peace Up.
