In glory, the flame rises,
licking the cold air.
Its searing heat burns away
all impurities, carrying them into nothingness.
The fire of purification makes anew,
leaving that which remains stronger, more whole.
Fear not the times of trials and tribulations, for such are the tools of the smith. each blow of th hammer brings about new strength and greater resilience. Each time you are placed against the anvil of life, you are reshaped, being made into a better vessel, a more radiant tool of my will. With each change you endure, your purpose becomes easier to fulfill. So cherish the moments when your basic essence is tested and tempered, for it is for the good of all, including yourself.
