Like a burning wood!


Like a burning wood,

I remain ablaze,

providing warmth to the death of life,

which froze in the chilled air ,

of living and survival fight….

 

Ignited  once,

I glow brightly,

lighting the way …

of the dark dream…

with a ray of hope I continue…

burning more vigorously.

 

Like the burning wood,

I knoweth not,what holds me,

and what blazes my wood ,

Enkindled I was born ,

my purpose is to keep it

burning in the dark…

 

Charred at corners

I sometimes  get,

Still radiantly shining as a coal,

But the eternal flame

within brightens more,

as it sees the divine door…

Like a burning wood ..

I want to burn…

amidst the lives  of  thousand lores…

    Reminds me about the story of a hero in Greek Mythology were his life was dependent upon a burning piece of firewood. Beautiful.🙂
