A space surrounded on all sides by walls
and a roof for heating metal
glass to very high temperatures
It’s like a furnace
I burnt my eyes
burnt my body
and soul too
I burnt all
burnt my values
burnt false traditions
burnt ethics
burnt past on the stake
there’s nothing more to burn
I burnt myself
my hands look badly burnt
my eyes can’t see more
ear can’t listen any voice
fires were burning all over the soul
some dead leaves
I saw on the floor
with the burning eyes
All my belongings were burnt in the fire
I saw my house was burnt to the ground
As a child I would often escape into a dreamworld of my own
but ….
there was no escaping the fact that I was overweight
I managed to escape from the burning house
fast ..
more faster
avoided views
narrowly avoided defeat
I’ve been avoiding getting down to escape all the time though
there was many voices
from my heart
from my soul
I haven’t been listening to a word my soul have said!
Why won’t I listen to reason?
I tried to breath
breathing furnace
breathed the new dawn air
breathed the wind of change
breathed and evolved
to develop over time
like often many generations
into forms that are better adapted to survive changes in their environment
the idea evolved from a past I discovered in the attic
gain knowledge from experience
being taught from history ain’t bad
as history could repeat itself
I learned a lot from the past
