Favorite Quote:
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
T. E. Lawrence

Every day is twenty four hours;
Every twenty four hours, there will be a day,
A day when I can break my chains
and let my soul just fly away.

My human body
My mortal frame
My flesh and blood cannot simply tame
my burning soul that feels such pain
from living every hour of every day.

It burns so hot
My skin can't be touched
It simmers my bones and it hurts so much
What makes it worse is no one can help
which bursts my heart and withers my health.

But one thing for sure and I will forever be certain
that as long as I live, it will forever be burning.
Up until the day that I will die,
that's when my fiery soul will soar in the skies.

The author's comments:
Forced to be in a stone-like state all my life is causing a great toll on my mental and physical health. It got so bad, that I couldn't go to sleep because of how much pain I felt. It was like being burned from the inside. So I stayed up all night and wrote this poem.
