The Rage

Crushed by the world above
The choking pressure built
Slowly, steadily,
Violently

The magma within
Began to move
Controlled, Compressed
Boiling

It fumbled, then grumbled
Then rumbled to warn
Igonored, mocked
Stepped on.

Enough it cried
Born from the dazzling flames
Rose the golden smoke
Venting it out

One last try
To get the struggle acknowledged
Failed to happen
Erupted the furious heart

The words like lava
From the mouth they leaked
People like grass
Destroyed, they shrieked

Still the rage continued
For long it’d waited
Until the damage done
Too difficult to be reverted

Finally the dawn broke
The golden smoke now looked black
The beautiful fire,
Now converted to ash.

Inspired from a rough day and this awesome short-film made by some very cool people. http://www.sciencealert.com/watch-this-short-film-shows-just-how-terrifyingly-powerful-lava-is

    It’s a beautiful personification! I know it’s completely out of context, but it reminds me of the last stage of a phoenix too! πŸ™‚
