Starting Small

Beginning with just a tiny spark,
Light quickly floods the dark.
The spark takes hold of what is near,
And slowly starts to burn and sear.

Tongues of fire have come about,
Taking a very dangerous route.
Now quickening their deadly pace,
The flames swiftly fill the space.

Raging now is a massive fire,
With flames that never seem to tire.
A fire of unimaginable power,
With flares that continue to rise and tower.
But the lesson to remember most of all,
Is that the greatest things start out small.

The author's comments:
I hope that people will see from this that you shouldn't underestimate others or yourself, since even the best and most powerful things never started out big.
