Refinement Through Fire

Ignite a light inside my soul,

and let it burn away the old.

Let it singe away the residue

of hatred and disgust

that caked itself

upon my heart

and made it hard to trust.

Let it disintegrate

the apathy that suffocated

my desire to live—and live freely.

Let it till away the dampened dreams

that I laid to rest with tears

to make way for colorful passions

that will bloom for endless years.

Let it sear away the debris

left behind by broken memories.

Let it replace the shadows

that cast fear and doubt

in the corners of my mind.

Let it burn for the rest of my life.

Let it burn for the rest of all time.
