The Embers Await

yo will be scarred or reborn

By HufflecupPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

the glowing embers await

the flaming tongue consumes

your sorrow goes up in smoke

fear becomes survival

your soul may starve

but the fire will flourish

brittle rage becomes unyielding wrath

stay awake with the pyre

and you will get burned

do you seek vengeance or redemption

nobility or glory

the scars of honor

lights the torch of fate

are you destined for chaos

or order

will you cross the wildfire

a herald of liberation

or become lost in the conflagration

every piece of you turned to ash

left to corrupt the breeze

About the Creator


I want nothing more than to dedicate my life to writing, so I figured I would start here to test the waters. I will be submitting stories to as many communities as possible.
