The Fire


Theres a fire in us all
That nothing can put it out
It's heat can heal us
Or make us die
As tears fall the fire grows
Not even love can help us from this fire
It may change us
Or makes us stay the same
Pain makes the fire in others grow
For if the fire gets to big
We lose ourselfs
So the olny way to make die down
Is to never be anyone else
This fire is always with us
but it never shows
The Fire

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
