The Fire Within

By Lykeios All Rights Reserved ©


Chapter 1

There is a fire within

It burns




Consuming all parts

of myself




The fire lays havoc upon

My heart, my soul, and my mind

It disintegrates

But also cleanses

The inferno rages inside




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




There is a fire within

and I welcome it

For it will purify from inside out

And top to bottom

Bless the pain




For from pain and flame

Comes light

And Liberty

And newness

There is a fire within

Let it burn
