From a time long ago,
Buried deep under the skin,
Was a fire, spreading slow,
Burning inch by inch within,
Don't know how it started,
But I could feel the heat,
They made me all exhausted,
Not something I could beat,
The fire has started rising,
The smoke has risen too,
I bet it's not surprising,
If I breathe the flames too.

Long has I been still,
But it's time to sit no more,
There's a raging fire within,
I can feel it to the core,
Sliding between my bones,
Climbing up the spine,
If I just breathe it out,
I hope then I'll be fine!
