It seems this fire is here to stay
It keeps on building day by day
And nothing that I do or say
Will change any thing in any way

I keep it caged deep inside
There to stay, to keep, reside
From the world it must hide
There to smolder, to burn, to bide

It consumes me like a raging pyre
It's flames are reaching ever higher
I'm warring against Evil's sire
But the Fire Within will never tire

The author's comments:
This is a simple poem about anger and how it eats away at someone who never expresses his/her emotions. Anger is symbolized by fire throughout the poem. This is the first poem I have written using the A-A-A-A rhyme scheme. Most previous poems have utilized either the A-A-B-B or the A-B-A-B rhyme scheme
