Lantern Of Beginnings
I am able and strong
by James E. Dunham
to each of my days and peaceful eves,
to strike my flaming of spirit
and ignite what ever I wish
my life to grab hold to.
Never to lose my believed hopes.
Not to look back but to look ahead,
to my future my strength, my dreams...
I can hold a candle for a while,
but my lantern of beginnings
is possible to hold forever.
