There is a fire in my soul
That I can never live without.
There is this will to continue
Even when I wish to give up.
Try as the world may,
But I can never lose this fire.
It is me
And I am it
And separating us is like
Separating the stars from the summer’s night.
The fire is who I am
For everything that went wrong in my life
For every time my hope shattered
My fire never extinguished.
This fire I cannot live without
Even as the flames scorch my lungs and lick my skin
I am bound to this fire
For it is the poison that gives me life.
The fire is what has molded me to who I have become
And I have molded it to my control.
Don’t try to dowse my flames
This is who I am
And for as long as I am
I will burn.
