Fire

(10 November 2009)
written in response to this post

Yes, I am like you
I contain the same glow,
This ancient power that spurned
Myriads of worlds and stars,
This same force to end
All of those lost begotten…

Feed it not with fear
For it will consume you!
Free rein should be confined
Least it burn the vessel
That allows it to live…

Allow it to consume you
And soon destruction follows suit
To burn in full rage
All the things you begin
Seeing you will never complete.

Fire, neither good nor bad
Feeds on your heart’s power.
Your thoughts, good or bad
Trims and gives it arms.
Purify your thoughts, love more.

In this way, fire’s creative
Warmth will always envelop you
To burn with full passion
In all things you begin,
In all things you complete.
