The Fire Within

There is this Fire within
That refuses to go down

I get lost often in the noise
Of world inside and outside
But then I suddenly realize:
There is this Fire within
That refuses to go down

I tried hard, the world tried harder
To douse the fire, give it no fuel
But it keeps burning
And refuses to go down

It burns me, makes me uncomfortable
But this discomfort is all I love in me
I exist till it keeps burning
And refuses to go down

I see the Fire everywhere
Inside me outside me
Wherever I see, whatever I see
Its Fire everywhere

This Fire is all I have
Life doesn’t matter
World doesn’t matter

This Fire is all I love
For I have nothing else to love
For I see nothing else to love

This Fire is me
This Fire is all I see
It keeps burning
And refuses to go down
