Burns so brightly
The light inside us.
Never entirely going out.
Never stomped out.
Add the fuel of your choice.
Dance, write, paint, play, laugh.
It’s all the same.
It will all turn the ash to fire blazing bright.
Live fully in every moment.
As if dying were not an option,
But a choice that we would make when
A time came to fully embrace the ash.
Let the fire burn brightly
For all to see.
Give life your all.
