A lifetime of want

Of longing and need

Needing more

Naked greed

I stare at the flame

And see in its light

The dance of me

And my empty plight

But as I stare longer

A stillness descends

As if me and I

Making amends

The fire is complete

Burning bright

Beyond right or wrong

Fighting no fight

The fire is free

Cares not for an offering

Knows it will burn out

Yet no sad suffering

It burns intense

Yet does not take

I gaze upon it

and a wish I make

I wish for nothing

I want no desire

No want no need

Make me fire
