i, firefly

fireflies

i am like a firefly:
thin-winged and fragile
with a light that is
______bright
____________(in my brief bubble)
______bright
____________(but only now and then)
______bright
____________(and wishing to be brighter)

*

i am like a firefly:
small and star-like
always just about to burn
______out,
____________out,
__________________like a brief candle
when i really want
to set the world
ablaze

*

i, firefly,
cannot hold this fierce flame back,
no matter how weak my wings
