(Hephaesus, Greek God of Blacksmiths)

I am an anvil, strike me
Steel is forged
Across my back
Strike me

I cool faster than pig iron
Drizzled across the night sky
I am pain without the dross
Strike me

I will not bleed
I will not spark
I will not cry out
I will not die or rust or crumble

I am an anvil
I have purpose
Strike me

The heavens will not fall
The stars will not blink
Fireflies will not fly away
The sun will not burn
The oceans will not empty

Strike me, make me
What I am

Strike me God
Then love me
