The fire
Lust’s desire
The flame
Of fame
Oh how it burns
Licking wisps
Of heat at every turn
Scorching reminders
Of what you’ve earned
The life
The body
What you hold most dear
Your biggest fear
Is that they fade
With every day
Every second brings you closer to your last
You’ve been through hell
And made it back
Believe me
It still waits
And burns brighter for you with each passing day
And brighter
With white-hot hate
You can’t escape
Or run
Or Hide
So release your pride
View your world
With unbiased eyes
Because regardless of what you’ve done
Or the things you own
You’re far from special
Because eventually
We all fall
We all die
Whether you lived a life most pure
Or lived as a liar
You’ve lived
So just welcome
The fire
