Sea of Fire

I hold back my tears.
It is not pain that I fear.
I fear the Fire.
The face of the Primal force,
beholding itself in a massive sprawl-
just a breath away.
I gaze into its depths.
I see no end or beginning.
A massive Sea of Flames
is how it stands to be seen;
blazing with glory.
Lashing with grace.

I stand two chances-
To plunge
or to retreat.
Pride holds me rooted.
In my Honour I believe.
I know. I will not step back.
Within me wells pure fury
as cold as steel.
The fire sea beckons me;
Into this I shall pass.

Now I take a gamble-
I take the mortal plunge.
In Nature's sense of Justice
prevails my sole refuge.
Mercy I seek not
for redemption or from doom.
If guilty I shall perish,
In purity I will redeem.
If I should return
unscathed,
untouched-
No mortal I shall be.
Then My graces will know no bounds
and so shall My Fury.
