Fire

By Kgopotso Soopela

There is a fire in me
Its consumes me and only I
Only I can extinguish it, but whenever its time
To take a step
And walk through that door
The pain and fear
Suddenly becomes bearable
I don’t want to lose my head
I’d rather not be without my head
Maybe if i could step back from the mirror
And let go of that machine
The change i seek wouldn’t be so hard to find after all
Let the past burn
And the future bloom
And in between the chemistry
Let me be born again
Allow me to live
Like an eagle in the sky
Set me free.
