The Burning Flame

The Burning Flame

You keep kindling the fire,

Lest it blow out,

You keep in check no doubt.

The flame also burns,

Within all teens,

I was once a flame,

But still in life

To remain aflame

Keep kindling

Thy lower flame

Again and again


As often as you can,

Come over to play

The same game,

Man and woman

Have played

Since aeons passed


Shall for eternity hence,

Love thyself as you alone

Can keep alive,

What in love

You desire to strive


To keep his own flame alive
once in a while
young kid though
who doesn't know
