Fire - Poem by Mthoko Mpofana

When we discovered fire, nothing was ever the same
We were but simple creatures before it came
Fire destroys & rebuilds again & again
Fire is hatred, anger, fury, burns & causes pain
We cry fire, fire is love & passion
Fire is rebirth, scorn, purification
Fire is the soul & the soul of our world
Fire is simple but has an unending wrath, the nature of fire is cold
So 'do not play with fire' they teach us
Fire separates us from other creatures
Fire spread with us from the South to the North, West & East
We tamed the fire to tame the beast
