Fire ~ Michael Rawat

I am a fire
A summer’s day
Hot and bright
January
I am angry
I laugh as I watch trees and houses fall down
I am a fire
I am fear

I have seen water
Blue and calm
Death
I have no need of life, because
I am the one who takes it
I have me and only me
I am shielded by people's fear
I am a fire
