Dear Fire Within,
You only seem to activate when my buttons
are pressed and a rage resurfaces from deep within.
It is when you appear, I feel the people-pleasing subside.
The need to run and hide.
There is a power you possess that I need to obtain instead of contain.
You make this life less mundane.
When the burning starts and flames erupt.
I fight to control the outcome of your wrath.
When I really should take a moment and laugh.
Fire within, you and I could become great friends.
There are days I need to see through your lens.
Your instinct to right a wrong.
The raw emotion you release awakens the beast I long to see.
Fire within, stay silent no more.
Speak even if your flame trembles
to tear down this façade of galore.
