Burning Flame

Earth,

Water,

Air,

Fire;

Will this world bring desire?

The stars,

The sky,

The moon,

The sun;

Nobody said life,

Was fun;

For life itself will,

Make you run;

The stars,

The sky,

The moon,

The sun;

My prism of life,

Had started to spin;

It spun into,

The deepest,

Darkest sea;

Not even I thought it to be;

The salt is earth,

The earth is fire;

Will this world,

Bring all desire?

The earth will have,

To open wide;

To wipe this world,

Of all lost pride;

Thy loss of pride,

Has reached the sky;

Yet it is not our turn,

To fall and die;

The earth will burn,

In its’ turn;

I am the one who,

Makes you yearn;

I am the one who,

Makes all fire;

I am the one,

Who all desire;

I am the one,

You can not tame;

I am called,

Burning flame.
