On The Other Side of the Fire

mota_ru_10318516[1]
You have passed through the fire
something you would never have willed on your own
the flames and staggering heat have done their work
but now
in this moment suspended in Time
you have a choice
you can become like ash
a vile disintegration of your true essence
bitter on your own tongue
and in the mouths of others
or you can become like gold
with rough edges smoothed away
beautiful and shining
strong yet malleable
a word of Hope and Promise
you have passed through the fire
and your next step will be determined
by the form you choose to take
