    their two souls were
    already fully engaged
    in the flames
    before either could
    extricate themselves
    from the inevitable

    truth

    their fear was
    not the burning

    but never knowing
    love ~

    their joy was
    now bound together
    with pain

    and they were made
    more pure
    for the experience

    they'd been
    singed to their
    very nostril hairs

    they were survivors
    who lived to tell
    about withstanding
    the heat


    who will one day return
    to dust

    while their souls soar
    into the heavens
    fully engaged in the
    flames

    wow Hadassah
    such an encouraging peace!!!

    while i don't usually stop to share
    exactly what a peace did for me
    i am this time ... cause it seems
    a little different than what you
    probably intended ... perhaps ...

    in spite of the fire
    perhaps even
    because of the fire
    i must keep moving
    forward
    feeling it singe
    burn me
    but i must not stop
    taking the fire with me
    the trials
    the tribulations
    the hard times
    drag them along
    to where i am going
    arriving there
    perhaps a little burnt
    a little singed
    but i will be there

    thank you for this

    :heart:

    We do arise stronger from the flames, although while being burned by them we cannot see this. Feeling this scribe.
