Fire of life

Fire burns all that touch Leaving scars to those who are foolish It cooks our meat, our food Giving nutrition to further life It rages with fuel And dwindles when smothered Spreading with just a spark Burning forests and killing life It brings warmth and a sense of home But if wronged it will take all it gives It brings wonder, terror, life, and death Do we control fire? Or does it control us?

This poem is about: 
Our world
