Burn pt.2

Burn pt.2

A Poem by Justin Miller

We are born into this
Not born for this
So give us the chance
Our opportunity to live

Violence is like gasoline
And arguments are the fuel for liars
And my lungs will fill with smoke
As I burn in the house that we lit on fire

Time never stands still
As our clock is always running out
And if we never take a second to mend
We will never put this fire out

Like our home, we will BURN
Suffering as we pass
In the middle of all of this
I can feel the collapse

But our mistakes are nothing more
Than a second chance to be SAVED
A second chance to breathe
For us to walk out of the flame

We are not perfect, but this is who we are
And if this fire is all we have left
We will turn it to water
With the tears that we shed

We will not burn

Thanks a lot. Your words are greatly appreciated.
This flows smoothly. I think it's great. I like the fire of lies.
