even if

even if
the whole world
stopped giving a shit
i would still
hold a candle
however dimly lit
in the expanse
of eternity
and i would
feel its warm flame
within my heart
until its final drippings
were spent
and the last
beat of my heart
sounded silently
in the darkness
of humanity’s apathy
and in my dying breath
i would whisper
to the sky
my eternal optimism
that someone
would rekindle
the flame
that makes humanity
the uniquely
beautiful thing
i have come to believe
it could be
if only we would
burn for each other
the way the stars
burn for the universe
