I don't want to hide from this life any more...
It surrounds me anyways.
The distance between it and me is self-made
And has done nothing to protect me
From the fire and cold
Blowing from earthly bellows.
Forging me
Melting me down
Hammering me into steel
Cutting edge
Strong,
Wielded by another's hand
I will swing my own blade
And hear its whistle on the winds
Of my own breath's making.
Thunder
Fire
Ice
Godlike and Pure
I will not be insignificant
Anymore.
