If I am Fire,

I am not just a firecracker that children play with when they know they shouldn’t

or a firework that explodes only a few nights a year

or a bonfire that has no purpose other than to warm a set of toes

or a forest fire that destroys all in its wake.

 

If I am Fire,

I am the Fire that Prometheus stole for humanity,

I am the Flame of knowledge that has burned our souls since our creation,

I am the ball of light we call a Sun that keeps this rock we call home alive,

I am the Fire of the human spirit in all its chaotic and enchanting glory.

 

If I am Fire,

I am The Fire.
