Eeyore

Topic: Reborn

Some days, I dream
I dream of wings of flame, carrying me through the night
The flame engulfs me
Beautiful flame embracing me, warming my very soul
Self-hatred, gone, burnt to a crisp
Nothing but ashes left of this shell
Nothing left but me
Frail
Vulnerable
Enmidst the warmth of the comforting flame
The loving flame that burned away my flaws
Leaving me a little less whole
A little more free

A hand reaches out
Draws me forth
Into the light
A gentle hug
A warm embrace
My flame
My loving flame
My glorious flame
Given life
Given soul
Given body
Given heart

And I?
I grow
Nurtured
Blessed
Loved
Happy
Reborn to a new and better self
