Fire is a symbol of survival


Fire keeps you warm at the

Same time though

It can burn you

If you lose focus

Just for a minute

Life can do the same thing

One minute everything is perfect as can be

Then in a just second

Everything changes

Is this change good or bad

That is up to you

Do you rise up from the ash or

Do you lay covered in ash

Not able to get up

You decide in one moment

If your life is over and

The fire inside you is gone

Thoughts like that go through the mind

When times are tough

You can find a way to keep that fire going

No matter what happens

If you want to keep living life
