"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela


Burn down the sky,
Unveil the stars, the seas.
Taste the warm blood
That builds the veins of reality.
Tower the mountains,
Level them to thy feet.
Die facing odds;
May that be cold or heat.
Kill the blind talisman;
Search for eternal salvation.
Knot the tassel of heart strings
With mystical screens of revolution.
Be the forest fire.

This is very interesting- I liked the fresh metaphors, your use of rhyme in the middle, and the line 'Tower the mountains, level them to thy feet'. The final line, although powerful, felt a bit abrupt to me, though. Still, this is a great poem. Congratulations on getting into the magazine!
