Let Not the Fire

Let not the fire of desire die

Let it not be smothered by satisfaction

or blown out by bitterness.

Let it burn white-hot, bright, and clear

even when it shrinks to a mere ember

waiting for the wind of adversity

which would fan the flame

or extinguish it entirely.

Let not the fire of desire die.

Feed it a steady diet of disappointments;

Let it lick up your thousand little losses.

Consign to it your cravings and lusts.

Let not the fire of desire die.

For it is the only light left you

To lead you through the darkness.
