Flame On - Poem by matt fromm

if you really want it in this life
burn everything else
this may mean your job
your girlfriend
your wife
your friends
maybe even your mother
if you really need it in this life
torch the lot of em
this could mean changing your appearance
your name
your address
or even your brain
if really cant live without it
throw gasoline on the rest
set ablaze last year
the year before
and especially
your life story
and you'll do it
after all; what else do you have and I mean really have other than right now?
i'll tell you one thing;
unless you can love, cherish, and embrace this second of your life;
you might as well set fire to that too.
