Burn (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #11)   Leave a comment

I need to burn off my deadwood
Shed all my unneeded layers
Remove all my “would” and my “should”
Keeping only the needs and cares

Burn past my first degree nonsense
Second degree things I care for
Ignite a fire so intense
I burn to my first degree core

What’s left when the fires are done
Will be my most critical part
For when all my useless is gone
I’ll have a fire hardened heart
