Fire Current

My feet took me to what we can call a path

How I reached to this crossroads

Did I walk on unknown trail so blindly?

As I chose a trail

Walking in a terrain of pebbled path

My feet gets accustomed to its touch

Walking on stones

The road does not end over here

A river of lava and fumes

Cuts my trail

The color of fire

Adrenalin arouse

Hidden soul appear

My heart urges to be free of me

Waiting to sink in this burning soul

I think no more

My feet walk on the burning stones

My soul melts in fire

Though my feet are burning in pain

I convince me that I’m born to do this

I walk without fear

Unexpectedly, I seem to be absorbed

Into a circle, an immense current of fire

Anger that burns my skin and bones

I’m caught in this burn, all pleads run in vain

The fire dies when all is burning ashes

Dare to walk on this fire
