LIKE PETROL, UNLIKE PETROL

Like petrol,

coming from a place of refining,

from crude to refined.

Like petrol,

propelling others, burning yourself,

using every energy to the last pint.

Like petrol,

when you are done burning yourself,

they refill, pick another petrol.

 

Unlike petrol,

never leaving the place of refining,

continuing steadfastly day by day.

Unlike petrol,

prioritising your growth first,

even as you stand up for others.

Unlike petrol,

refilling yourself by yourself,

staying filled, always relevant.
