Fire In My Soul #apoemaday1

January 1, 2020


I am not a dying coal
A fading ember in the darkness of this world
A charred log, apathetic
Nor am I ashes from a firestorm
Blown by others' thoughts, opinions

There is fire in me
Fire in my soul
A burning hearth for justice
For Truth
I blaze, a Light, as You commanded
Throwing sparks to every person

Sparks, sparks
Dots of scarlet
Bits of hope
Pieces of my soul
The pieces of a flame that dwells inside
Starting other flames
Sending the fire and light
As I was given it
