    Ignite

    My mind, they think is incomplete,

    no grit it is composed of,

    my heart, they say, got me to cheat,

    no fire it spares to animate me,

    my body, slander cause of my defeat,

    bare meat with no tensile, no pace.

     

    Bleak, aloof, dispassionate, as I am viewed,

    discerned to be proud and arrogant,

    abandoned by spirits, zeal and beaut,

    they think I Am.

     I suggest you cover your flute,

    ’cause you quidnunc, you wide of the mark!

     

    You settle on a façade,

    my soul protected, is confined to me only.

    Sufferings of mine are not for you to parade.

    Covered in gasoline, yet to ignite,

    galvanized mightier than you might.

    But I am not an arsonist.

    Scintillating spirit is a phase,

    And impermanence ain’t insignificant.

     

    I don’t want to burn out in this mist,

    hunting in this fit of folly, something undying,

    capable to furnish my life with a just gist.

    It isn’t a conflagration that is necessary,

    A persevered heat makes it.

    A fair poet said likely,

    “Truth is rarely pure, never simple”
