"Burn" by Ellie Goulding
         I'm going to take several lines from Ellie Goulding's song "Burn" and start a poem from my own words added. I am going to italicize her words.

We don't have to worry about
Anything; What a wonderful thought
To have. It's our time to take a turn;
We'll burn one hell of something.

They will see us from outer space;
Let's take time to set the pace.
Raise our hands, raise them high to
The shining blue sky; Raise them high
And don't ask why.

We don't want to leave;
Let's cleave to each other. Soothe
Out the edges of life's domain;
And smooth them over with a
Four-leaf clover.

Now, we just want to be right.
Take a flight to see the sights.
We were guarded by love
When the lights went down.

It's the perfect time to join the
Choir; We got the fire; It's a good time
Not to doubt or pout. I'll burn it out.
Giving love to the world, they will know
When they get a good word; it's what
They have heard.

         Ellie Goulding did an excellent job with her song "Burn" in the video. It made me feel good to hear the music. Giving love to the world is very good; this is the way that it should be. We can light up the fire, not forgetting to burn it out.
