Burning Deep

Source

There is a fire

That burns deep inside

Of your soul

You cannot put it out

Over took you

It has control

Hidden strength

Lie in the pits of your core

It resonates throughout

Stinging

Bringing light to everything within

It brings you power

It brings you grace

It burns deep

Too deep to chase

In the darkest nights

When you feel weak

It makes you strong again

In your heart it longs to keep

This light inside you

Guides your way

Through fear and hate

Unpenetrable decay

It is the fire of your ancestors

Everyone who passed away

They protect you

Throughout the

Long endless days

Your image grabbed my attention from the start. It was followed by words that were so powerful and drew me in. It was written by a seasoned poet. Well done!

Caroline, I've been too busy lately to spend much time online, what with warm weather finally here. I loved this poem, especially the fourth line from the end, about ancestors. I so agree!

Thank you,

Jim
