Ashes to Flames

I would rather burn in your flames
than freeze on your stone.
I would smolder and burn
rather than feel nothing at all.
I would give my blood
before I softly atone.
I would rather burn in your flames
than freeze on your stone.

Though I am the wrongly accused
burning at your stake.
The innocent burns brightest
in your unmerciful fire.
But your snowfall is strangling
freezing a water that never breaks.
I am the wrongly accused
burning at your stake.

I would rather burn in your flames
than freeze on your stone.
and the innocent burns brightest
as you have stated in your ember tongue.
and after I burn and burn
I will crumble into ashes.
But then ashes will rise

and I will become the brightest flame of all.
