The Forge

so many irons in the fire panting like a bellows to keep it roaring
struggling to remember which tool i am to be forging
afraid to remove the bar from the flame and strike with the hammer in case i shatter the steel
and have to start over again

i have been in this place of fire for so long it seems
working to form the perfect blade
when all the while i am the one being tempered
