The Fire Within - Poem by benaiah sondashi

chain me
lock me up
step on me
ignore me
there is a fire within me
it has a heart of its own
block me
shut me out
silence me
its iching deep down my throat
i can't stand the heat
i have a burning desire
to let it out

chain me
lock me up
step on me
ignore me
i can't hold it back
it started as a spark
now i'm burnt on the inside
the smoke going to my head
its clouding my mind
block me
shut me out
silence me
you only adding fuel
i'm letting it out
and when its out
only then
at that very moment
will you feel
will you see
what i've been holding back

chain me
lock me up
step on me
ignore me
one last time
and at that time
at that very moment
will you feel
will you see
the fire
