i, firefly


i am like a firefly:
thin-winged and fragile
with a light that is
____________(in my brief bubble)
____________(but only now and then)
____________(and wishing to be brighter)


i am like a firefly:
small and star-like
always just about to burn
__________________like a brief candle
when i really want
to set the world


i, firefly,
cannot hold this fierce flame back,
no matter how weak my wings
