Chapter 1

There is a fire within

It burns

Flickering

Blazing

Thrashing

Consuming all parts

of myself

Destroying

Wasting

Incinerating

The fire lays havoc upon

My heart, my soul, and my mind

It disintegrates

But also cleanses

The inferno rages inside

Erasing

Refreshing

Invigorating

Though they bring pain unimaginable

And intolerable

The flames bring understanding

Realizations that destruction of the old

To fertilize the new

Though excruciating

is necessary

There is a fire within

It spurs beginnings, rebirth, and creation

From ashes comes life

New life

Which brings a new

Attitude

Perspective

Freedom

There is a fire within

and I welcome it

For it will purify from inside out

And top to bottom

Bless the pain

Burning

Searing

Tearing

For from pain and flame

Comes light

And Liberty

And newness

There is a fire within

Let it burn
