A Poem by cassandra violet

There is a fire 
inside me
That has always been lit
Because these flames
are who I am,
want to become,
and have

It has been soaked
By the rain 
Of life.
It has been blown on
By the winds 
Of change-
But it cannot be
Put out.

The light of
My heart 
the sun,
The shine of 
the moon over 
evening shadows,
The stars 
that dreamers
Gaze upon at night.

We are either
Born with a fire
Or given
None at all,
But it is our duty
To make sure that 
if our soul was birthed
with spark it is 
never put out.
And to this day
mine has not been, 
it still blazes
Wildly within.

"It has been soaked
By the rain
Of life.
It has been blown on
By the winds
Of change-"

I love that, because these are the two things that make life the most difficult. It's interesting that one of them would be life itself, but that's how it seems to be sometimes.
Anyways, excellently written.

I like this a lot! I love the metaphors your used and I agree with the statement you're making. We all have burning desires we long to put out, I think you wrote about that nicely. Good job!

Beautifully worded. So true is your message!

May your fire only grow stronger and brighter my friend. You confess such richly painted truths here, and remind me that though the rains pour down, the fire need not be extinguished. Powerful!

Awesome write. I think everyone has that spark in them. Sadly for many, it is put out during youth, never to be rekindled. Some of us seem to be able to keep that ember burning no matter what life throws at us.

I hate this part. This is the part where I try to tell you who I am, what I've been and what I want with every single last milimeter of blood dancing in my veins to become- the person who my heart bea.. more..
