Admiring the flames

With scorched wings,
a testament to her independence,
she delights in crimson.

Her palette of imperfections,
colored to remind others
of her strength and disposition.

She became the light she sought after,
the prayer she sent to the stars,
and the dream she never imagined.

While others have been chained to the flame,
she’s no martyr—
she became her own needed champion.
