Flame of Life

I am living life by the moment
and its racing by like a wave of sound.
So many times in my life ive felt
that if I stop fighting I will drown.

For once I am gliding
walking on the oceans waves.
Singing and smiling
because I am happy these days.

Life never gets easy
but ive learned to like the taste of bitter sweet.
Sometimes things are crashing down
and falling at my feet.

I have realized now though
that doors slamming shut on me
Means 10 others open up
I just had to open my sad eyes to see.

Things change and people move on
like the wind and the sea.
And sometimes things are shattered
and somtimes they are ment to be.

Lingering over the past
just makes life dark and grey.
I have to open my heart up
and live like today is my last day.

Sure, I still have shadows
that dance around my soul.
But I have mended a jaded heart
and I am close enough to whole.

Like a scarlet lick of fire
I dance untamed
And the heat of my embrace
is all but trained.

I may burn you
with my love or my hate.
Or I may warm you gently
the fire decides our fate.

And sometimes my words are like water
cool and soothing as they pour over you.
But when the water turns to ice
stinging is all they may do.

No matter if I am a fire or an ocean
It still means the same.
I run high with emotion
and they are all but tame.

Warming or cooling
burning or stinging
I can hurt and heal all the same.

But in these moments I am happy
and the heat runs cooled
or the ice runs warm.
