Tonite I light a candle,
for no one in particular.
Or maybe just for me.
For each and everyone.
A vigil for the sustainability of our sanity,
that we can make it through
before the moment (whatever that might be).
A prayer that we might breathe easy,
body and soul,
and that we may not sink so deeply into
the mud of our own mind
that we’re unable to unfurl our own fumbling fingers
towards a friend or a stranger,
who too, seeks a hand, however weathered,
