There aren’t very many opportunities for a girl show the world what she can do. Many times, the things you’re capable of sit in a silence that only you, yourself can hear. The strength inside someone can only be brought out when tested. If you’re fortunate enough to never have to show your strength, you may not know what you’re hiding inside. But if you’re like me, you know what happens when you look into the fire.
It’s like it takes you over and consumes what used to be you. It turns you to ash and then out of that ash, there’s a tiny spark that’s still you. Then suddenly, something breathes on that spark, and it flares and you grow into a fire of your own. All the strength you were forced to use is now empowered and the punch behind it’s revenge is much harder than what it took to call it out.
Suddenly, you feel like you can handle whatever comes your way and walk away from any flame without getting burnt. You start throwing your own fireballs and harnessing your strength to protect yourself and those you love. Soon, the fire becomes so wild inside you that when someone looks into your eyes they can see it for themselves. It ripples through your veins and your skin burns hot.
In order to grab the reins of something so powerful, you need to learn how to control your strength. Once you accomplish this, you are no longer vulnerable. It becomes you and now it takes more than a few raindrops to put you out. And you appreciate that.
