You need me everyday and admire my beauty
Yet you are afraid of me as verb and verb and noun
Humans need me to survive
Whether they are camping in forest or living in town

You make me many times a day and make me die
Sometimes I am silent and sometimes I cry

Some believe I am one of the world's basic elements
Some worship me or use me to worship while uttering chants

Who am I?

  • $\begingroup$ Can you explain the "you are afraid of me as verb and verb and noun" part? $\endgroup$ – colmde May 6 '16 at 11:00
  • $\begingroup$ @colmde 'fire' as a verb means to lose one's job, something most people don't like. 'fire' as a noun is fire. $\endgroup$ – Benito Ciaro May 9 '16 at 0:02
