Progress

Progress
Are we learning to make fire,
with every breath we take?
As we grasp those sticks so firmly,
for all humanities sake.

Will we keep rubbing them together,
until we gain a spark?
And know that our endeavours.
will only be the start.

It may take us some effort,
but from a spark comes flame.
It's flickering light's potential, 
will that be our gain?

But flame begets flame,
it spreads both far and wide.
And if our efforts go overboard
do we then run and hide?

Making fire should be our aim
but there's a lesson to learn.
It's flames may dance, inspire our minds,
just be careful, who we burn.
