Elements of My Heart
Element of Fire

I am the fire
I am the soul within
Now our journey can begin
Waiting a long time to come
From the place that I am from

I am the temper
Filled with anger and ire
Filled with languid mistrust
Seeing what I choose to see
Instead of what I choose to be

I am the spark
Something hurting, something helping
Filled with a cup of irony
Filled with a backwards forwards
A journey seeming endlessly

I am the heat
A pain in the side of foes alike
An ironic twist for ones allies
A bitter memory so confounding
Only beginning to ripening

I am the burn
A scaring, staring reminder
A thing that will not die
A thing that will not disappear
I am here and I am strong

Try to get rid of me.
You'll find I am not
That easily deterred
I am a stubborn idiot
But then again I'm not

I am the fire
I am the soul within
Now our journey can begin
Waiting a long time to come
From the place that I am from
