O my wonderful mother
Loves me to no end
I support her political views
She supports my upbringing
But religion wise she’s a straight up mensch
I doubt I’ll ever come close
But one of these days, I’ll have to light her parents candles

Let me tell you something I hate more than
It’s fire
Sure, it’s always been a family tradition but
Lighting candles has been very hard for me
I’m worried I’ll drop the lighter, the rod that lights their candles
Or worse
Start an immediate fire of my very own

It seems I’m always good at starting fires
Nonetheless, I can’t seem to put them out
For some circumstance regarding fear
Or happenstance of thought
I guess you could say
I’d rather not start a fire, period
Than watch my entire world burn
