Room For Changing

our primal instinct is to fear the fire
destruction we believe to be its one desire
impossible to tell where the flames may go
as chaos directs this blazing inferno

completely consuming all in its way
the living, the old, the dry, the decay
unfair, i cry, this cremation of trees
in the air it is sharp, a death scented breeze

Though we may despise this ugly stage
natures rule is let the fires rage
when the land is cleared, with nothing remaining
there is room for renewal, growth, and changing.

walking through this black ash filled grave
a green leaf flutters, as if to wave
without old trees to block the sun
in pheonix fashion new life has begun
