Faith of the Fires

I wish I have that Faith

I wish I got that Fire

In my heart

In my gut

Where are you Faith

Why fizzling the Fire

I need you Now

Both Faith and Fire!

I yearn for a glimpse of hope

I'm shivering for that heat

Is this ever going to end?

That deep hopelessness

This frozen, frigid feeling

I need you now

That Faith of The Fires

4. Faith of the Fires

In the heart of a mother

love lives.

She steps in, stands back

lets go.

Pride swells deep within

her chest.

If you do well she lets

you know.

A wrong turn taken

she guides you back

With encouragement

a gentle hand on track

Mistakes of same

a lesson is repeated

Disrespect her

she cares - yet feels defeated.

In the heart of a mother

taken to task

A spark ignites to make you learn

- it was simple what she asks...

In the belly of the earth

a fire burns.

Faith of the Fires


Here, you can see it in my chest,

That hole; ash-filled, cold and dark;

I can promise you once, long ago, a flame burned there; one of the best.

Ah, the stories I could tell of remark.

Oh, the stories I could tell of that once-bright-heart-gone-cold;

It had a happiness that shone

Near as bright as the stars now centuries old.

But such stories, such paths have come-and-gone.

Amongst the ashes now, in the coldest-darkness

Of this hearts tortured pathways

I wander alone, reminiscing at memories no less.

In the halls that once, long ago, shone with such starkness

I now only feel a faith

Of the fires that once burned, bright…

Faith of the Fires

My whole life I held a faith

Of a fire deep within

Between two in a gaze

Couldn’t wait for it to begin

Everything seemed a haze

When I looked back to where I’d been

Seemed like a game

I couldn’t win

Until I heard her name

On the lips of her kin

I know it sounds lame

But I swear, when I saw her grin

Something happened to my brain

It went into a spin

And my wild heart did tame

Curing me of my sin

All because of my faith of the flame
