firebrand

she walks through the world
fire in her eyes
flames under her skin

the weak step away
lest they be singed

the truth is
behind the flames
lays a scared little girl
never as confident as she seems

she watches the world around her
wonders how they don’t see
what a lie she is

or maybe the flames are the truth
and
the lie is what she tells herself
after all
being a firebrand
isn’t always a comfortable thing
