You either let it swallow you up.
Or you let it build you up.
It can completely take something down.
Or help someone survive.
The thing our parents never told us to touch.
Or told us to touch to make us learn a lesson.
It can be so lovely
yet so deceiving.
It can help you find your way home.
Or lead you far away from it.
It brings a lot of opposites.
Because it’s a part of life.
Fire, how lovingly deceiving.
