*Fire of Life (school assignment 9th)

Life is fire
Some flames burn brightly,
sparking and erratic,
continuously fueled by adventure and excitement.
Others glow faintly,
a breath of wind could put them out.
These need nurturing,
need love and care to kindle their flames.

Keep a flame close,
be cautious of how it’s handled.
Cradle a flame within your hands,
protect it from rain and wind and peril
Speak to it with the softest whisper.

A flame only gets one chance,
just one.

So easy to go wrong
to make a simple mistake
that extinguishes a flame forever.
