Soul on Fire

I will not be content
To remain a spectator to my life.
No longer will my dreams
Collect dust on a long-ignored shelf,
Festering in the poison
Of neglect and regret.
My deep-seated yearning for
Something real, something more,
Will consume the fear and doubt
That has frozen my ambition,
Providing the spark needed
To set my soul on fire.

"Festering in the poison
Of neglect and regret."
