The Sound of Fire
I have a history here. I am part of this landscape. I have forged it, shaped it, and renewed it time and again. At times, I have been a mishap. Once or twice, I was brought forth at the hands of mischief. This time, I was sparked to life. I awoke from the elements, timid and trembling. As I took my first full breath of air, I felt myself grow. I spread myself wider, reaching farther, stretching into the depths of the night. While once I had been nothing, now I was everything.
