Keep your fire

Guard it

If your light blinds them, let them turn away

Dazzle unapologetically

You are a creature nurtured by earth and sun

You have the right to fire, heat and passion


Be the sun around whom planets orbit

Let them fight your gravity if they dare

Blaze boldly


Hold your own reign

Frigid winters, gentle springs, sweltering summers

The decision is only yours to make

Be unwavering


Experience love, life and passion

A life without pride or passion is a life unlived

Live to the fullest



Written in response to Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing prompt, where the word is “glow.”
