Flame Inside

You can’t make fire feel afraid

But I am afraid for you

As I am filled with embers

You can’t drown out

No matter how much you try to fill me with doubt.

Your words are like gusts of wind

Like gushing gasoline

You do not drown me out

You wind me up

Reminding me of why I have a fire within me.

I know too much of this world

Its’ nasty people

And their horrible words

Trying to mute mine

Trying to take my existence

And drown me out.

But like a fire on a cold winters night

You can still hear

Especially with a keen ear

The fire crackle and pop

With all that I have to say

About what is right

And with all my might

This fire will not stop.
