Doll of candle

Onto the shelf was I placed
the light through the glass
made me glitter, my eyes shined
bright like the stars
attraction of everybody’s eyes were I
till a time when my heart lost it’s light
I forgot the reality of life, being proud
inferior did I think everyone to be
many people tried to guide me
but I was all lost in believing
the comments of praise people made about me
and here is this time, oh the time of my death
when I melt away
by the flame of truth
the reality that everything has a value but till a time
and the end is all the same
to break into pieces
everything has to fall down
like me, a doll of candle
breaks down at the hands of death
becoming may be a part of history forever

Blinded were my eyes by the words people spoke
a masterpiece of beauty and delicacy
was what how people described me
I thought it would stay like this forever
the world may move upside down
but nothing could turn my neck down
nothing could harm my beauty, my shine
and that was how I exactly walked
myself onto the road of destruction
and here is this time, oh the time of my death!
when I melt away
by the flame of truth
the reality that everything has a value but till a time
and the end is all the same
to break into pieces
everything has to fall down
like me, a doll of candle
breaks down at the hands of death
becoming may be a part of history forever
