The fire that burns within me is incredible.

It is the essence of my soul, a gift from God.

All of Me Springs from within this well.

Where my talents, feelings, and spirit dwells

But unless your eyes are open you will never see.

To some it’s plain as day, two others a mystery.

It makes me cry, it gives me joy,

through life’s pain it keeps me sane.

This fire is my claim to fame.

It’s a true characteristic from the queen that bears my name.

It makes me desirable as a mate and a friend to those in need.

Diva with the heart of an Angel is what my Tombstone should read.

For if this life should end the fire would still burn bright

in the hearts of those I’ve touched or help to see the light.
