Pain of Fire

You can’t run from this pain

The fire burns in your bones

Lungs thick with smoke

Mouth tasting of ash

 

The trees are all gone

No homes for the birds

An echo of madness

Fills you with rage

 

You stop drop and roll

It is all you can do

Put your face in the dirt

Grab onto the earth

 

Heartbeat by heartbeat

You struggle to stand

With trembling legs

You begin over again
