There is a burning fire inside
One that I’ve never learned to tame
I was taught to fear and hide
And not to grow this flame
Cool and collected on the outside
Warm and fiery on the inside
Not knowing what to do with this flame
Not wanting to cause another pain
I transformed this fire into blame
Pointed at my own self, time and again
But now I’m sick and tired!
Instead of softly speaking I want to spit fire!
Let the flame rise!
Let the fire burn!
I want to hear their cries!
Now it’s my turn!
Watch as I ignite!
For too long I’ve been turned off
Now I’ve finally come alight!
