In Water and Fire
By Jolanta Gradowicz
I wont flow into the deep, troubled water twice.
I wont do it again, I promise solemnly.
I regained peace of my soul, but at a price.
Everything I need is to keep balance only.
I wont fling myself into the fire again
For my burnt heart and my dreams turning into ash.
It hurt me and caused chronic pain and destruction,
Surrounded me and overcame in a flash
In the elements I had to find some solace.
I lost myself wholly in the fire and water,
I hardly survived the time of pain and madness,
Yet I dont regret any day and any hour
