Ignite a light inside my soul,
and let it burn away the old.
Let it singe away the residue
of hatred and disgust
that caked itself
upon my heart
and made it hard to trust.
Let it disintegrate
the apathy that suffocated
my desire to live—and live freely.
Let it till away the dampened dreams
that I laid to rest with tears
to make way for colorful passions
that will bloom for endless years.
Let it sear away the debris
left behind by broken memories.
Let it replace the shadows
that cast fear and doubt
in the corners of my mind.
Let it burn for the rest of my life.
Let it burn for the rest of all time.
