All to Burn

Some say fire burns the life
Kills the soul and melts the ice
I say fire clears a path
Leads the survivor
to what may come too fast

Trees no longer block the view
We are searching to find you
Lost amongst your village no more
To see the ruins young and poor

All remains black with ash
Remnant of life stolen to fast
Survivors may bear what is no more
Until no more is not to know

This is a really good poem, the message is so clear and you've managed to keep a nice rythm throughout the whole thing!-thats something I can't do ahha, but I'm new to teenink as well, when you get a chance would you rate/comment/ just read my story? Thanks!

I was really impressed! I'm new to the site too, but what I have to say is that I loved your first stanza (well i loved the whole poem, but that especially). That is an interesting way to look at things! i don't quite understand the very last line- Does it mean until things grow back again or something?
