How do you tame a wild fire?

You cannot - it has to be put out

Like hearts yearning with desire

Longing to spread love about

How fierce are its colors?

While it dances over everything

Even fire cannot contain its power

It eventually fades into nothing

How lucky are the lovers?

Who never love 'til they tire

But some allow pride to take over

As they turn on others, like fire

How does one tame pride?

As crazy as it makes a person

It takes you on an emotional ride

Before all the sanity - it worsens

How deceitful can one be?

When guilty eyes start to show

You then think, "Is it me?"

As hard as it is - like fire, let it go!

How sad, when there is no calm?

Your heart broods 'til you go mad

It sparks off (like fire), or a car alarm

And then your day becomes bad

How do you change the world?

As circumstances alters us well

Everyone, as precious as pearls

So easily crushed, and burned -

Unless surrounded by our shell.
