Double Burner

candleWhy would anyone ever want to

Burn a candle at both ends?

Are you some sort of overachiever?

Maybe Amish gone wild with fire?

Cut it out, right this instant!

Life

Is

Meant

To

Be

A

Slow

Burn.

Enjoy it.

Let it

Take its time

To

Burn

Down

To the end.

If you burn the candle at both ends,

You’re only bringing the darkness sooner.

Then you must live in blackness,

Fully knowing you could still be in the light.

Live

Your

Life

At

The

Speed

It

Was

Meant

To

Be

Lived.

That way,

You will have

More than

Enough time

In the light.

Trust

Me

On

This,

People

Who

Burn

The

Candle

At

Both

Ends.

If you do,

You might live

Long enough

To

Thank

Me

For

This

Awesome

Advice…
