Poem: "Flames" by Danielle T.M.S. Butler
The flames of past misfortune did not burn her,
they engulfed all she was;
reformed and renewed her.
Her eyes shot sparks of light
through darkness for she knew
life was precious
and she owed it all she could give.
Danielle T.M.S. Butler is a writer from Plano, Texas, USA.
I am a hybrid: Chicago soul, Texan spirit - it is the driving force behind my need for adventures and friendships. My love for words spiked while living in Seville, Spain. I am a young working professional with a marketing /ad agency background. I love Indian food and Tex-Mex. I am always down for Scrabble, and I'm obsessed with my American Eskimo puppy. This poem serves as a reminder that we have permission to free ourselves from the past and start again.
