On learning to control the fire

Sometimes you have to
pull back layers to get to the core
un-bandage the wound to treat the sore
strengthen those wings, so you can soar
dive deeply so you can touch the ocean’s floor
quiet yourself, so you can listen
sit still, so you can read
breathe in, so you can receive
take a step back into a lunge
get ready to get set
so you can run

Peace
