When I was a boy, I would always hear scary things in the news and my mother would say to me, "Always look for the helpers. Everywhere you look you will always find people helping." - Fred Rogers

You're crumpling up the fire
Feed it to your eyes
Crumbling, things are dire
Heed to all the knives
and I know that you think you got everything ahead of you
and you go and you figure that there's nothing not said, untrue.

Know this, under it all you'll find the queen
Harvest the bunker of Adam and Eve
Sweet, sweet towers await you there
Keep the looks for hours, down your fate, you'll now stare.
While preparing, you just don't get what you're causing
You'll jump headfirst into the flames, into it with no pausing.

Wow! I love the emotion in this poem. It can be interpretted in so many ways.... I absolutely adore metaphors, and there are plenty in this poem! My favorite line is "Harvest the bunker of Adam and Eve." This line just rolls off the tongue. Keep up the good work!!
