Fire Inside


I have a fire within me

That if fed can brighten my day

The flames that have danced when in love

The fire that will light my way

When smoldering, I felt cold inside

Desolate, in the dark…

I gathered myself and took a breath

And was awakened by the spark

I will keep the fire burning hot

And grow from lessons learned

Experience brings me wisdom

Even if I might get burned

The fire stays stoked inside me

Roaring throughout the night

Darkness will pass and the sun will rise

With my fire still burning bright.
