Fire Within - Poem by Juvela Obi

Shadows fall across the land
His chuckles fill the night
Feted breath in the air
I'm preparing for the fight

His approach is slow
His smile is creepy
His words are muted as I plan
For he sees not the fire within

This is not the first
He has come before
But now I'm letting go the fear
He'll meet with only vengence here

He has worn me down
For too many years
Down to ashes in the night
For I was too afraid to fight

But once the ashes
Were all that was left
The anger flared up
And the pheonix rose again

His evil laugh becomes a cry
He is going to lose this fight
From now on I won't back down
He'll ever find I'll stand my ground

My eyes start to glow
As I push harder
The rage behind them
Ever stronger

I'm winning this battle
And I'll win the war
The fire burns brighter
I know what I'm fighting for
