There is heat in freezing.
I used to think I was weak or depleting;
Too little to be worth greeting,
But it is not that I am not good enough to be heating.

I am the heat in freezing.
I am enough.
I am a scarce resource
That no extraction could force.
I am the barrier, buffer, and boundary
Between you
And absolute zero.
I am what I create in my foundry.
There is nothing you can do
To be my hero,
Because I am the heat in freezing.
I do not exist for appeasing;
My purpose is not to be pleasing.
