The Fire and the Warrior

Out of the fire,
Life grows.
The flames burn strong, 
And sear my soul.
My heart grows faint,
The pain,
The intolerable pain,

Yea, though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
I will fear no evil in the flames,
To cleanse my soul;
To release the Light
In the dark night
of my soul.

In the fire,
Love brings forth life
Out of pain;
Darkness exposed;
Evil released;
My heart cleansed
Set free;
Life grows.

Shall I endure
For lessons to be learned
And freedom to obtain?
Shall I wait upon the Lord
To be set free?
Will I persevere?

The Warrior rises up;
To fight;
To endure;
For victory is sought.
Out of fire
New life grows.

The journey long
And narrow is the way.
The day becomes night
My heart weary
Loses might;
Becoming faint;

The Warrior,
Champion of my soul
Rises up,
To fight,
To endure;
To persevere;
For victory to claim.
Out of the fire
New life grows
Giving rise to hope.

    You did great re-inventing for yourself the age-old analogy about how fire doesn't only destroy, but is also a process of purification, and how some seeds will only germinate when touched by fire's heat. I found your poem to be an entertaining read. Your name doesn't seem familiar here, so if you are a new member of this site, welcome to the Soup.
