Survival Instinct

the flames
struggle
to stay
alive
while the foreign rain
pours down,
threatening to drown
yellow, orange and red
and reduce them
to ashes.
time passes
and the flames
grow faint
until
they seem to be
nonexistent.

but underneath
the thick coat
of ashes
is a spark
still glowing brightly.
