The Fire Within

The Fire Within

A Poem by TheShAdE

For all those having trouble finding inspiration


Inspiration, that fire within

Can come in many ways

Experience you face

The good and bad

Will resound

It never strays 



Warm feelings of love 

Can bring life to a page

In time's when feelings are gay

But the pages will crumble

Streaked with tears

When the love, it goes away


Malice comes and goes

It makes its mark

On every tattered, page 

Words intended for joy

They become twisted 

Or warped in rage


When the flame's snuffed out

The words cease to flow

Contact cannot me made

Lost kindred spirits

They float on alone

Lost and scared they fade


Pick up the pen 

And be a guide

Let it help get others through

The flame has never gone away

It lives inside of you.
