Bearing the fire, a shining light upon the hill
Hoping to draw moths closer to your binding flame
A gleaming beacon bringing the lost to your heal
But all they find is self serving interests
Something so scarce, knowing one's actions will only service themselves
A righteous facade proudly displayed on your sleeve in view of all
Unaware of your trespass, my heart free of guilt
Disguising self preservation as an act of grace
A staving beast among the herd feeding thoughtlessly with no regret
Sparing itself of shame and grief, only mindful of it's own well being
Though the heart's candle still holds flame it always warm the one closest first
And those seeking the remaining warmth only find blessings from spare remnants
Unspoken motivations, driven to endure and belong
Hiding true intentions, a selfless spirit displayed
Deceiving the whole, now exempt from your share of blame
