Burn It Down



~~~

I did not start the fire

But I laughed as the world burned

Warmed in the pyre

Of all the lessons yet unlearned

Sorting chaff with an ire

~~~

What little you must know

Unfound, an ounce of sanctity

In all the hate you sow

Words like weeds to humanity

Strangling as they grow

~~~

You cannot bait me small as this

Opinion offers no reprieve

Spiritual poison in the kiss

Cannot change what I believe

Regardless, what you may wish

~~~

So, burn it to the ground

If that is your great desire

But my words will not be found

Fanning your hateful fire

It is in truth my words are bound

~~~

    Wow. Looks like it didn’t take long for your words to come back. This is a very powerful poem.
