Burning In My Blood

There is a burning in my blood

It burns so hot

Runs so deep

I cannot escape

Why is it burning

Why do I feel this deep seated pain?

Burning my gut

Yearning to emerge

What do I want?

I want more

More of everything

More of the desire to succeed

More of the talent

More of the way

It feels

When I take pen to paper

And write it out

Letting my emotions

Dance and play

Doing whatever it is

They need to do

There is a burning in my blood

God how it hurts

As it scorches my very soul

I’m clawing at my skin

Ripping it to shreds

As I try to find the way

To denounce the burning

There is nothing I can do

To remove this pain

This victory

This triumph

There is a burning in my blood
