The forge

Strength though apparent is fleeting.
It breaks too easily.
Into the fire. Immense heat!
Add some of this. Pull it out. Hammer it.
Back into the fire.
Pain immeasurable, or none at all?
Repeat. And again!

Something emerges. Does it crackle into dust?
Or something new, bright and strong?
