Elemental Being

In my life I’m a fire

Burning, raging higher and higher

My energy fills and moves my universe

And my uses are contradicting and diverse

In my soul I am flowing water

Moving ceaselessly in the ether

Cleansing the lives of countless souls

Helping them set ever higher goals

In my friendships I’m a wind

Caressing the hearts of the chagrined

And yet wiping away the deathly heaviness

Of those who tend to ever digress

In my faith I am the stable earth

Stably progressing since my birth

Unshakable is my faith in me

Clear to those who wish to see

And so, the four elements combine

And in my life they intertwine

They are different and yet they merge

Thus truth is allowed to emerge

Fire burns the decaying pains

Water purges what remains

Wind cools the earth below

Earth contains the rushing flow

From the earth life bursts forth

Through the wind is set the course

Water flows through the way

And fire clears the dark away
