A Flame of Fire

Like the fire burns the wood shavings,
reducing each to a pile of dust.
The silence when the world around you,
crumbles down,
kills you as much.
When thousands of mortals surround you,
but no one dares to speak up,
so it doesn’t shake their ground.

And the silence of good souls,
kills you more than the sympathy of hollow men,
who follow the crowd.
The fire tenderly burns in your heart,
killing the expectations you had with others.
And instead of charring your soul,
it feels a little warmer,

You can breathe without holding your heart,
and gut to your mouth.
Suddenly it feels a lot lighter,
knowing you have emerged from the fire,
battling the demons inside.

The fire burns until it makes your soul weep,
by cleansing all the haunting memories.
And like the ash,
it sets you free to soar high,
until you rest in peace.

A Message for You:

Life is a tumultuous cycle. Sometimes it brings happiness, the other times sadness followed by gloomy clouds of despair. Nobody will pave a way for you to walk on the bed of roses. If you are here in this vast world, you are going to be challenged again and yet again to polish yourself.

Take lessons from your mistakes. Accept your failures and learn how to stand up in front of the mirror, with head held high. Be honest with yourself and those around you. Usher kindness to those who value it. Remember that everything in nature is made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space.

So rise like the fire and burn fiercely, until the light inside you flickers and finally fades away. Celebrate the spirit of Agni (fire) that offers courage to you.

Let thy spirit be high in love. Namaste

I am a soulful woman who loves to conjure up my thoughts and write. I thoroughly enjoy creating art and expressing myself through words. I believe words have a certain kind of melody that can be understood by everybody.
