We Are Fire

In case you missed it here is the poem I wrote for the guest blog I did over at The Well Tempered Bards.

We Are Fire

by Jessica Scott

(Dedicated to Everyone, with all my Love)

 

We are the embers waiting to glow,

We are the seed expecting to grow.

 

We are the candle flame that lights up the dark,

We are the arrow aiming for its mark.

 

We are the sunbeam that shines through the storm,

We are the change that brings reform.

 

A single thought thrown into the wild

“It takes the village to raise a child.”

 

Just one small spark passed along,

One becomes two and two become strong.

 

Two becomes a thousand and together they stand,

Heart to heart, hand in hand.

 

We are the flames that burn ever brighter,

We are the music-makers, the dreamers, the writers.

 

We are the voices that will be heard,

We shine our light word by word.

 

The simple hope that lights the night,

You and I are soldiers of light.

 

We are the love that burns but will not die;

We are the fire…

We light up the sky.

 

*inspired by Ella Henderson’s song Glow, 1000 Voices Speak For Compassion, and, especially, Lizzi Rogers
