they don’t know about the fire

they don’t know about the fire within

they don’t have the dreams i do

they don’t know about how far you can go through the pain

they don’t know what you’re capable of

they don’t know about how finely well-chosen words can mean the world

they don’t know how to sit in silence 

they don’t know how to hear the poem 

the song

within their hearts 

they don’t know how to bring it forth

sing like a bird

let music touch your soul

they don’t know about how the fire burns

how embers glow

how to keep it quiet

when it feels like it would consume you

they don’t know about the fire

or what to do with it 

even if they saw it

if they felt it

if they had it
