Why the fire failed

Sitting on the damp log of wood in the shack that was our new home staring into the darkness at the faces the dying flames failed to light up.
Tears lacquered our eyes as we cried in silence.
I know it wasn’t because of our empty stomachs, or the leaking roof that soaked up our mattresses, Or that daddy couldn’t pay up the rent. But because the fire wood were wet and the thick white smoke burned our eyes.
But Because we stopped fighting and allowed defeat. we had settle for wet firewood and that’s the reason the fire failed.
