    When fire is applied, chaos is unleashed
    It sweeps across the canvas and burns deeply
    Twisting and Turning to ash
    Every damn thing in its path


  2. when Fire is applied
    to damp wood
    It sputters, smokes
    and goes out
    leaving partially charred remains
    waiting for more
    time to dry
    more oxygen
    more skill
    more patience
    to burn my brightest


  3. When fire is applied~~~

    When fire is applied to my life, I have two alternatives… to cower in the shadows or to advance forward and face whatever head-on.
    Human existence is an amalgam of highs and lows, joy and sadness.
    To exist, to thrive is to find the positive when we find ourselves in the deep valleys of life.
    We are all here to make a positive change in the world we share.
    To do that, believe in yourself, believe in a power greater than yourself.

    We are all stronger than what we believe… we are all stronger when we work together toward common goals.

    When fire is applied
    You can burn, baby, burn.
    Loosing the shell,
    Leaving only the ash.
    Is that your essence?
    You bet it is.
    Finally people can see who you really are.

    When Fire is Applied

    When fire is applied I explode. I cannot take this situation anymore. I will get up and fight for what is just and do what is needed to care for myself and for those I am assigned to help.

    When fire is applied it melts the walls around me and allows me to become my true self.

    When fire is applied I can join with others and fuse myself to them. Together we can be stronger.
