Stoke the flames of your passion . . .
Eventually a great monster will emerge
from the furnace of your hearts burning
and will reduce any notions of self-doubt to ashes.
The holy fires of passion will purge
any profane demons that may linger
within the confines of your soul.
Dance, Dance with the flames
and you will know true peace.
Sit idly, and you may be consumed
And when it is all said and done
and the fires within you cease to
burn brightly; know that the dying embers
of truth will shatter any and all
false perceptions that you may carry.
You will be warm forever with the light of ancients;
which will illuminate all the shadows in your life.
