Setting the World on Fire

Some times
Setting the world on fire
Is the only option
Watching the blaze—
Of the people who don’t deserve it
Deserve to be breathing
They perish
In the blaze to the world
They have left scars
They have caused pain
As that fire burns,
And I watch it burn
I step into it,
Letting the fire seer my skin
Letting it lick my face
I look around,
I see faces
Faces of the people I love
They aren’t burning in the fire
No one is—
Just me
I have put too many people through pain
I have left too many people with scars
Including myself
As I fall to the ground
Letting myself burn
Wanting to scream,
But the smoke fills my lungs
Wanting to cry,
But the heat sucks the tears out of my eyes
Wanting to run,
But my legs feel like jell-o
Wanting to ask,
Ask for forgiveness
But my voice is gone
My voice has been sucked out of my body
I am just a limp body
Laying on the ground
Scared
In pain
Wanting to change
For the world
Even though I,
Set the world on fire.
