Fire

Remember what you must do
when they undervalue you,
when they think
your softness is your weakness
when they treat your kindness
like it is their advantage.

You awaken
every dragon,
every wolf,
every monster
that sleeps inside you
and you remind them
what hell looks like
when it wears the skin
of a gentle human.

From Wild Embers by Nikita Gill
