by Jennifer L Banks

I made you from the ashes
of the child I used to be,
I lost her in the fire
that burned the woman into me.
I walk away inflicted
with wounds and scars for life,
but a woman rose within me
with a fierce eternal light.
I felt I had not known her,
Save the flicker in her eye.
That was so near like the childs
Consumed by flame that night.
