Beings hopelessly lost
Mindless shadows drifting
A muffle pierced through to us
Beckoned an end to our strife
Rise from your ashes
Unbind your chains
There is more for you
Than what is here
Said the Pyro
That burned into my heart

Through the smoke we followed
We found the voice within
The truth of civility
Lies we’ve been told
Discarded into the blaze
Along with our shadows
We now see the light
And we begin to listen
To the Pyro
That charred the souls we were

Revelation seeps into us
Newfound strength in its words
Savage joy corrupts us
Rules without a struggle
All identity is forgotten
But we know who we are
We will never fear again
In this chaos reigned
By the Pyro
That made us lord of the flames

We come together brighter
More numerous than the stars
The army sweeps with the wind
Like the breath of a dragon
Scarring the earth
Screaming its might
Tangible passion destroying
All that defy what has come
We are the Pyro
That set this world on fire
An ode to :iconthepoeticpyro:, who, indeed, has changed many of our lives with its simple yet fierce words.
I originally planned on a drawing, but I guess inspiration crept up on me. I wanted to make a cutesy, lyrical poem at first, but I can't rhyme for my life, so free verse was ultimately my only option. And somehow along with the new style came a new subject, thus resulting in...whatever you want to call this.
You can probably tell, but just so you know, I'm not a poet. That being said, I tried to make this easy to follow, but I apologize if it doesn't turn out that way. If I end up unsatisfied with this (which I usually do with most of my written works), I'll make Pyro a pretty picture instead.

This is the contest I submitted this for: [link]

Hey, I like yours, too! Just because it's not quite as symbolic or serious doesn't mean your poem is no good! :iconsadengineerplz:

Same here. As I said before, I'm pretty decent at understanding literature, but I need to work at making it at the level I'd like to. We both just need to work at it, right? :3
