Creating Fire
Poetry

Is the fire going out?
Not in your belly,
for you are still alive,
but in your soul,
that place

where dreams
fuel commitment

where longings
shape action

where meaning
flames purpose

where passion ignites
and rekindles
your life fire.

If your soul smolders
dream on
till you flame
like a chalice of hope.
