One Small Candle

One Small Candle

VERSE 1

She lived in the middle of the city

But felt like she was living in hell

She wondered how she ended up here

And felt dread as the night fell

She felt so isolated

And scarred by broken dreams

She fell asleep serenaded by

Gunshots, moans and screams

She lit one small candle

And put it next to her window

To fight against the darkness

And let the world know

That one small candle

One soul to stand for right

One small candle

To keep away the night

VERSE 2

She felt like that small candle

As she struggled every day

To walk towards her goals while surrounded by

Those who lost their way

She was assaulted by temptations

Hammered by neglect

But kept on walking anyway

One step following the next

She lit one small candle

And put it next to her window each night

VERSE 3

This went on for years

And things got better over time

She struggled every day

And lit a candle every night

One night before turning in

She looked out and to her surprise

Saw 10,000 other candles

Drowning the darkness with their light

One small candle

Was able to conquer the night

Hope Is The Answer

Hope Is The Answer

By The Prophet of Life

Many people today live lives of quiet desperation. They see their dreams slipping away from them as their bills, their work and their frustrations pile up. They want to make a change for the better but don’t know how to change or where to begin to make the change. Others have accomplished something in their lives but are barely holding onto it, afraid of losing what they have, watching everything they have worked for erode away slowly. Still others, have nothing. They are living out of their cars or on the streets without a home, without a job and without a clue as to where their next meal will come from.

Many of the people in these three categories have lost their hope. An interesting fact about hope is that it is always present whether we feel it or not. The purpose of the song I wrote below is to inspire hope in people from all walks of life and in every nation in the world. It looks at people in different situations and tells them that there is hope and that whatever their problems hope is their solution and whatever their questions, hope is the answer.

Hope Is the Answer

A Poem and Song Lyric

By The Prophet of Life

VERSE 1

Man is an employee

Working and sweating

Every single day

Doesn’t make much money

Still, he’s got bills to pay

He questions the master

And has a long wait for his reply

Just when he’s going to give up

Comes the revelation

CHORUS

Hope is the answer

When all else fades away

Hope is the answer

You know, it’s got to be that

Hope is the answer

Come, let me here you say

Hope is the answer

VERSE 2

Woman is a mother

She’s got a lot of mouths to feed

Feels like a martyr

Frustration is what she bleeds

So many disappointments

Yet her faith it keeps her strong

Kids need someone to look up to

In times of desperation

(Repeat Chorus)

BRIDGE

Hope

Hope is the answer

I said hope

Hope is the answer

To the questions that we raise

There’s always hope

To guide us through life’s tricky maze

Hope is the answer

VERSE 3

So much suffering and heartache

Bourne upon this worldly plain

So many caught up in it

That can’t see beyond their pain

Cries the wisdom of the ages

All wounds are healed in time

Like a beacon to the future

Shines the inspiration

(Repeat Chorus)
