I know right now all you see, Is a boundless flowing sea With an admirable color blue, Prestigious depth and volume Pure allure, but on the contrary The tenacity of flames created me.
New may be waves that is found But I am far from being brand Before the flakes was my void Non-existence avioded shores Until the event of fire came With a snuggling red hot flame.
Burning out, covered in smoke Facing sweet tragedy evoked Carnage like never before Consuming bones, flesh and sore Encrypting; "let there be ash Burrowing like the sands of ants".
I went through the worst of drills Wondering what hell might be Floating, I felt like the air Following the rhythm and the cheer Of the naked flames as they came Embracing the outcome of my fate.
Deep inside the carnage I saw Was a chemistry full of claws But, out of the blues, came vapour The substance I emerged from; Although the fire event burnt All of me, in its rage I was born
In nutshell, I learnt a lot of things Never cowed by what fear brings Problems may arise but beside it Lies the solution to resolving it Someday we will be gone with the wind It doesn't mean we shouldn't face what life brings.
