Flames burned through the night
They wouldn’t be put down without a fight.
Determination etched off each spark
Lighting up every inch of the dark.
Ambition drove the lowly flame
Until it reached what was theirs to gain.
Failure is not an option
Wet words poured out, but caused no disruption.
The flames hair grew a brighter red
Until all of the belittlers fled.
In boldness the flame burned
Only wanting to achieve more it yearned.
Persistence kept it flickering
Even when those around it kept bickering.
Bravery kept the sparks stable
Nothing dared to deem it unable.
So when it seems like all hope is gone
At least we know the flame will burn on.
