The flames crackle and hiss
As the wood is piled on
Their existence almost extinguished
By one thoughtless act
They snake up the chimney
As quiet as a mouse
Yet they roar like a lion
To eat up the kindling
Spit out ash
This is what they live for
A short life
But every second is worth it

It is our choices that made us who we are, far beyond our abilities.

Wow... That was beautiful.
