I feel the flame within me burning, trying to shine beyond the surface of my skin.
It flutters deeply inside my being. Emitting vast amounts of warmth and love.
It carries the desire to express joy by allowing not just I to see.
My soul yearns to be happy as it asks me,
‘please let the light of the flame flow’
As I gain safety in which is me, I begin to open the valves of my heart.
Bringing up the drawbridge, allowing the passage of light to slowly come through.
I get scared as I begin to feel the hidden parts of myself be seen.
I clam up,
I cuddle into myself,
I hold the child within,
But the heart is asking me to stretch.
I am a beacon,
One that carries a fire beyond all that shadows it.
It is bright,
It is fierce,
It is warm,
It holds only kindness as it is lit with love.
As the light begins to become brighter and others begin to get close, I am reminded to be steady in my burning so I do not end up in smoke.
‘Please take care of me’ I hear as the flame is getting comfortable with others near.
At a steady pace, it continues to burn.
‘Please do not rush, but do not let me die, just listen and support, I promise to be your guide’
