The Internal Fire
Leah Jin, Grade 10, Citipointe Christian College
Every day the flame grows more and more.
The pain of the flames makes everything worth living.
Seeing the water clash against the boat, gradually getting engulfed,
It looks so pleasing from up here, but slowly I’m realising,
Being a villain and feeding off people’s pain,
isn’t making the guilt, any smaller.
It makes it bigger every day and it feels like it could take over me.
The taste of relief and relaxation just comes upon me when all these disasters happen.
It’s the worst part of being a villain.
Thinking that the worst thing to do, is the best thing to do.
That’s probably why I taste relief when I see people in pain,
to distract myself from, The Internal Flame.
