the sun , a ball of fire

I feel like i am a ball of fire
if that is true, then how am i lingering so high
no logs to keep me burning ,where are the matches
how am i capable of standing high up in the sky
no way for me to fall, sitting safely, i know the wind wont push me
i know the wind wont pull me into its back and forth motion
whirling throughout the sky, wouldn't that be a pure sight
a bobble of beaming light making a weird and wanderful movement
everyone would think , perhaps they were seeing things
perhaps, just perhaps, they would think themselves mad
or perhaps the sky had lost it's sense of normality, maybe
and i know when the rain starts to lightly fall
i know the flames within me , they will not fade or extinguish into ash
splinters dropping unwantedly onto the earthly pavement floor
the fire in places created by man, disappear and become drenched to extinction
by the rain which gladly misses me, passing nicely by my side
an opposing feel, water by a fire, and yet i am still here
the rain does nothing to change my heated glow
and the flames which keep burning sweetly within
when my flames create too much humidity, i feel a certainty
a certainty of a upcoming roar, the lion cannot tame itself
and its wild edges are simply ready to make a thunderous stir
the sky begins to cloud over and its my turn to shrink and fade
retreat backwards until the lion quitens its loud and rourous lips
and i can come out again, you see i am a ball of fire and i shine strongly
staying upright with no downward falling
ready for the lion to take my place, i sometimes find myself quietly fading away
