Our Fire #Fire

December 30, 2018


Did you know that when you snuff out a candle it doesn't hurt?

It's almost like life in a way.

We're born.

We live short, quick lives.

Then our fire gets snuffed out by something we have no control over.

The candle tries to burn the one that hurt it in a beyond-the-grave effort at revenge.

But it can't.

Useless and weak, it amounted to nothing in its life.

Maybe one day we'll be strong enough to burn down everything in our way.

Blaze our own path.

Create our own future.

I can imagine this place where our fire is brilliant enough to ignite everyone's souls.

A world in which we're all shining magnificently.

Where our fire does not get smothered by depravity.

It can rage brilliantly throughout the night.

The stars will cower in fear from our beauty.

Then the world will be ours.

As our fire burns our legacy into the sky.

    There's a lot of good metaphors and strong visuals in here. So strong, in fact, it leaves an after-image. :)

    Sure, why not? I've never reviewed anything on this site since I'm new though, so sorry if it isn't up to standard :c

    Hey, I know that you don't owe me anything, but would you be willing to review mine? It's called "The Musings Of A Burnt Piece Of Air." https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/96972/version/184446
