The purpose of this poem is to describe an element and relate it to myself and where I come from. I described how this huge overbearing power took me away from somewhere important; however, at the same time, it was a good thing: the power and love still today burns in my heart. In my poem, I discuss the reality of losing something of importance. It describes fire and fire’s way of taking everything away within seconds and making lifetime damages.
