This past Tuesday, students explored the theme of fire as both a force of destruction and creation. Check out some of the poems that resulted! In our opinion: it was lit.

Ghosts of My Fears by D.B.

Sometimes my violence overrides
my tears
located within the fire
the ghosts of my fears
the flames never growing tired
but I do
them gladly noticing
giving them permission to steer.

Fire by M.V.

The burning inside me
is what keeps me living
for without this anger and passion driving me,
where would I be?
It may be dangerous,
but it's also my brightness
keeping me from the dark,
from drowning.
My fire keeps me alive
burning every feeling
into me.
