There is this Fire within
That refuses to go down

I get lost often in the noise
Of world inside and outside
But then I suddenly realize:
There is this Fire within
That refuses to go down

I tried hard, the world tried harder
To douse the fire, give it no fuel
But it keeps burning
And refuses to go down

It burns me, makes me uncomfortable
But this discomfort is all I love in me
I exist till it keeps burning
And refuses to go down

I see the Fire everywhere
Inside me outside me
Wherever I see, whatever I see
Its Fire everywhere

This Fire is all I have
Life doesn’t matter
World doesn’t matter

This Fire is all I love
For I have nothing else to love
For I see nothing else to love

This Fire is me
This Fire is all I see
It keeps burning
And refuses to go down

For us, entire humanity is one single family without any artificial discrimination on basis of caste, gender, region and religion. By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings. We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape. We highly respect the original Quran, Hadiths and their creators. We also respect Muslim heroes like APJ Abdul Kalam who are our role models. Our fight is against those who misinterpret them and malign Islam by associating it with terrorism. For example, Mughals, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and every other person who justifies sex-slavery, rape of daughter-in-law and other heinous acts. Please read Full Disclaimer.

    अग्निना रयिमश्नवत् पोषमेवा दिवे दिवे । यशसं वीर वत्तमम् ॥ ऋक 1.1.3
    “May you always have access to any and every form of wealth, as and when you require, through the Supreme’s assistance! May your wealth let you attain unparalleled valor, foresight, brilliance and glory, and may this wealth of yours keep increasing exponentially everyday !”

    • No need for that buddy, this is not destructive Fire, not for benign elements at least. And because of such desirable, constructive, illuminating, protective, indomitable nature of this Fire; no ‘fire-brigade’ stands a chance against her!

    • The proper word is light. And fire is used to wipe out the evil within you. Come one man, use some sense. You sound like someone who intentionally wished to look like a fool.

  • Wonderful poem!

    This Fire within me leads me to find the truth and spread love, knowledge and peace everywhere. This Fire within me connects me to the Source of Fire and makes me One with HIM.
