A stack of logs, some wads of paper,
A batch of kindling and s bit of fuel.
All it takes to ignite a fire and set the flames roaring,
is a small match stick – such a handy tool!
The creative forces within, the spark of something fresh.
The apprehension and worry of showing off your creations.
All it takes to bring out the artist within an individual,
is any trigger that ignites the imagination.
Loads of imagination, tons of effort.
Every individual with a need to contribute.
To bind them all into a cohesive unit and generate profits,
one single leader ignites them with his traits and attributes.
The slow simmer and the restrained violence
The growing resentment against some perceived injustice.
Some casual act or misunderstood remark ignites
mob violence and devastates towns and cities.
Young minds with the world at their door.
Impressionable children with no idea of limits.
Great teachers ignite and fire up their intellect.
while ensuring that they don’t dampen their spirits.
For big things to happen, be they good or bad,
All that is required is a small act, a spark.
That ignites and causes the conflagration,
that can light up lives and usher in the dark.
