afraid of the flame



you keep your head like a pocket full of noise 
so the thoughts stumble backward like pharaoh 
Afraid of the flame 

you pump in the noise like smoke to get the rats out 
you are loud about nothing 
because you have yet to be strong,
like you already are,

Bigger,
like you already are

you hide behind the noise 
keep up pumping it in because 
who you are 
hasn't sunk from your head to your
heart 

you are a lion
hiding beneath
the noise
