Fire

You want to start the fire

You’d like to throw the match

Figure there is nothing lost

Within what you can catch.

You’d stand right there and watch me

On fire and unable to flee

You stand between the things I know

And what I’m able to believe.

The devil deals with anger

God, only with peace

You live somewhere in between

Where you can do as you please.

I began as a broken child

To build who I am now

While you are busy chasing your tail

I have taken a vow.

Nobody starts a fire

Within where I can see

It will not burn, it cannot contain

All that is inside of me.

You may find an ember here or there

Maybe a little ash

But you won’t burn me, I’m not worried

You don’t have the cash.

igniting my past
