Set It On Fire - Poem by jason medina

Let the night expire
I set myself on fire
I ignite everything I once was and could have been
Set it off from within

My time here ended long ago
Long since past are my flesh and my bones
Who am I but the shadow I left behind

Longing to bleed, longing to breathe
Longing for these tears to mean something; anything

I have shaken the hands of men who have taken from me
And have done so with the utmost respect for them
I have held in my arms those who have broken my heart
And have done so with nothing but love for them

Say its because I'm a coward; say its because I'm brave
But as the sun is called home the 'brave' sit in the stars alone
Admire the beautiful rose locked in a case that can never be broke
All that can be done is to sit and long to hold

Everything I once was has lead me to here
And its everything I could be that keeps me here
But I set it all on fire

I have been many things but I have never been me
Believe in what you are lest you live in life's deceit
Believe in me and I'll show you all that I can be

Reach inside the need is dire
Reach inside and set yourself on fire
