It is true that any fire will burn itself out
But what price will we pay for letting it burn?
A second ago, it was there.
The next, it had been consumed by the flames.
Writhing as if in agony, it twisted and turned.
In the end all that was left was a pile of ash.
Innocent lives ruined,
precious belongings destroyed,
and pure hearts broken.
That's the price we pay.
A fire will burn itself out,
but not before it burns everything in its vicinity.
