#313 spontaneous

Success is not a result of spontaneous combustion.
You must set yourself on fire.

Find what you love and let it kill you,
Fine advice from Bukowski.
Set your soul,
Your very life, on fire.
Then let it loose
all over your world
Feed it well
Let it breathe
Until your song
Rises from the ashes
Of what used to be your broken life
but now warms the worn
and speaks grace to the pilgrims
Resting along the way
