A tree stands alone on a hill
as a beacon of light
drawing man toward
its flame.

Man shall not deny the will
of the fire at night
for in darkness it
brings comfort.

Aflame, the tree lives still,
and it does not fight
the flame which
burns it so.

It shall no cease burning till
man, by flame's might,
is turned ash and
burnt alive.

This is very interesting; it made me think.

Jesus loves you! Don't believe it? Then at least believe that I love you! I may not know you, but you're a person too, and you deserve to be loved.

"Aflame, the tree lives still,
and it does not fight
the flame which
burns it so."

That stanza made me think. It was really good and I like this mainly because of that stanza. Keep writing.

-Zach

When I see your smile, and I know itís not for me, thatís when Iíll miss you.
