Fire

Tested.
Bested.
Hardly rested.
Singed and burnt,
The lessons learnt.
A pause…
Reflecting,
Inspecting,
Life neglecting.
Focusing on the fire,
Lead me to admire,
My hearts desire.
But…
So much focus,
Tends to cripple.
Consequences ripple.
I played life as a game,
But sadly missed the flame.

My name is Jesse, I am a writer. I post both poetry and mental health pieces about my own struggles and journey on my blog here: https://oneregulardad.home.blog/
