Fire Within


Searching through a narrow path
Eschewing anger or shallow wrath

With minor contretemps, faith shan’t wane
Burning embers of spirit ever germane

Each test anew will make me wise
Carpe diem or meet demise

A plebeian’s apologia reveals none but fear
Grandiloquence is for the insincere

Side Note: This is poem #5 in a series of poems that I wrote in 2006 – a year that left me broken so I could recreate myself. Retrospect helps me appreciate how great love and life can be; how each heartbreak is just as important as each triumph.
