Embers On Ashes
What’s the fate of the ember,
If it’s put on ashes?
It will burn out and become ashes,
once wood, and it blazed and burned and reduced to dust
Why put embers on ashes,
Poor thing, igniting but ashes cannot let you burn
They’ll huff and puff and put away your fire
Embers on ashes,
It burns, desperate, reaching,
But the dust is oblivious to its wants,
Desire faced with cold and death passes.
