Treasure Island

Eternal Flame


Fires don't rage they rise
Dance & flicker in our eyes
Bring warmth & pain in our lives

I burn as a flame
Yet untamed
Lost behind the myth of name

My fuel is pain; long, lost, & forgot
Like the Holy Land becoming a spot
A memory of a single soldier shot

No rhyme or reason in this trauma
No climactic conclusion to this drama
No bond ever formed with my mamma

Plainly stated, I've become what I hated
What I once valiantly debated
My mind has now recreated

So, I tell myself this is the path
Simply to justify my wrath
Still life is living & living is math

I preach a heresy that fits just right
Yell, 'CHARGE! ', as I flee in flight
Condemning everyone else too scarred to fight

This seems me, change so impossible
Truth isn't just an enevitable obstacle
It's a fire that burns: eternal; unstoppable
