A fire burns
Where there is hurt
A fire burns
Where there is pain
A fire burns
When all has died
A fire burns
When hope has left
A fire burns
Not giving up
Not giving in
Always fighting
Never losing
Not dying
A fire burns
Where my heart used to be
Where I used to feel love
Where people threw their spears
Where walls protected what was left
A fire burns
It burned the walls
My heart
The love
The wounds
The death
The weakness
The happiness
The people
Who tried to take away who I am
Who tried to hurt me
Who thought they could win
A fire burns
In the emptiness
Out of the ashes
Left from my heart
Feeding on hatred
Feeding on anger
No longer smoldering
As a helpless ember
Gasping for air
Looking for love
Trying to trust
Being abused
Taken advantage of
Left to die
A fire burns
It cannot be put out
For it burns the water
Before it comes near
With all the strength
Of memories
Never forgive
Never forget
Stay strong
Light your world
And in the ruins of the past
A fire will burn

Sometimes the strongest among us are the ones who have been the most hurt and have felt the most pain.
