    All I have in life, up in smoke,
    Dark fog upon which I choke,
    It could happen at any moment,
    And with no time for atonement...

    So I will not stagger through with embers in my eyes,
    But fall to my knees and hope that someone hears my cries,
    Under the smoke, consumed with a new fire,
    One that alights my soul and takes me higher...

    Never afraid of tomorrow, never seeing yesterday,
    In the heat of the fire is where the potter shapes clay,
    Torment and toil is where my kind strives,
    Coming out on the other side, we thrive...

    My bones crumbled like twigs and blood like fuel,
    Let me be a living sacrifice, my hands be like a tool,
    To do the good works of something greater,
    May I toil now so others can prosper later...

    A soldier against the lie, the hate,
    Against what others see as fate,
    Faith renewed, like hot coals in my chest,
    Truly, if not I, then who has been blessed?

    Legs to walk and arms to labor,
    A heart to love thy neighbor,
    What more could I ask?
    To go forth to do my task...

    May praise never cease to exit my lungs,
    To be restricted to not one, but many tongues,
    Rejoicing in all that I have, to give back to you,
    Because it is only you that can get me through...

    As I rise from the ash,
    Evil will flee in a flash,
    Smoke from my open maw,
    As my belief is burned raw...

    If you're actually taking the time to read them, then consider me a happy guy.
