Hot Coals

The universe has decided that you will walk on hot coals

While challenging you not to beg for your life.

The universe whispers secrets into your ear

The truth of which you have to find out for yourself.

You are scared

And you feel alone

Even when you aren't.

You're angry at everything

But if you're honest,

Mostly at yourself.

No one is blameless in this life

But the only way to ease your own suffering

Is to make a pact with yourself

To stop hating yourself.

You deserve to be sad

But you will never be healed

Cursing the time you have left.
