The Flame Inside - Poem by Pip Lucas

Blinking light in the sky,
I look around; no alibi.
Dangerous flashing coming toward me,
I begin to quiver,
ground shaking beneath me.
A scary sight for any eye,
I begin to realize I could die.
If I were to be as fortunate,
as those who rest in peace,

Change of thought, eyebrows crease.
For dying would not be better,
then feeling these feelings deep inside.
I try to think but simply can’t decide.
The anger inside my bottled up life,
cuts me deep, like a knife.
The damage I cause to my once pure heart,
force me tears and a brand new start.

The ashes of my burning hate,
come to life and celebrate,
the choice that came to cleanse my mind.
To forgive and also to be kind.
To understand my life awaiting,
can be cruel and often hating,
But to fear not as the truth beholds
the power that I hold.

Join me now, set it free,
the anger inside causes insanity.
Understand we must be strong,
tell the difference between right and wrong.
Peace to the world, joy to others,
tell your friends and tell you mothers!

A prayer to sing and sing to all,
Trust me as I catch your fall,
I am here I understand.
Bond with me as we comprehend,
the joyous ways of life around us,
wonderful sites will always surround us.
I see you forgive,
now pass it on.
Give to others,
Don’t wait too long!
