To sparks that surely rise when iron sharpens iron
I must confess my love for flame
I trade my oxygen for pyhrric victory
A crown of ash my prize
You breathe

Let go
Step from the fire
This bitterness hated and loved
Let go
Exhale the smoke
Breathe forgiveness and be not burned up

My vindication seeps from fist into the sky
A bittersweet release

Be not burned up


released January 1, 2021
