burning inferno

burning inferno poem by steven james humphreys

from the shadow in my view

to the phantom of the pew

we were born from above

and sent down into this burning inferno

we have not seen what others saw

we fish not from the same river

sorrowful lessons sleep within

joy of our hearts we loved in loneliness

we children we grew we came alive

encountering the storms of life

we tried to fly to heaven

and were turned back by reality

to stay awake not of our own will.
