A Poem Inspired by


An idiom’s a turn of phrase
Just another manner of speaking
It helps a mental picture form
Creates an image of what we’re seeking
Fire’s a most popular one
Used for describing passions
It’s chief in terms of the heart
And can work in many fashions
A celebrity sets the world on fire
A pioneer blazes a trail
A career may go up in flames
A short-tempered fuse may fail
Wildfire consumes all in its path
Unless it’s well contained
The same goes for a heart unbridled
It must be disciplined and trained
Don’t deny your emotions
Nor let them run amok
Ask yourself if they’re valid
Do they tear down or construct?
