Ruth

You are fire,

a burning, flowering flame

that consumes this world.

I watch you grow and conquer,

consuming challenges and benefit alike

with a hungry,

insatiable,

unthinking passion-

this world is not enough.

 

Fearlessly

your inner light drives you through darkness,

through mediocrity

as you burn away reason and doubt,

secure in your ownership of this world.

.

Through the fog of perception,

your brightness cuts a path

and you drive the chariot of your spirit

over the track of reality

with an unerring gaze on the future prize

that I cannot perceive,

nor begin to imagine.

I cannot mourn those for whom you cannot pause,

juggernaut heedless for the weak or wrong

trampled alike under the crush

of your momentum.

.

Your flame is a source of confidence,

sprung from whence I cannot see,

I am left wondering in awe

at your mettle.
