(there's A Fire Burning In My Eyes) - Poem by Allen Steble

Even the impossible can be done
because I believe it can
the toughest challenge can be won
because I am a fighting man
...there's a fire burning in my eyes,
because I'm after the prize.

Anything far-fetched can be achieved
yes, it can be done
because in truth I believe
that I am the right one
but that's no surprise,
cause' there's a fire burning in my eyes.

Anything unlikely can be overcome
in an hour of darkness
even though there exists some
who think the situation is hopeless
but my spirit never dies,
because there's a fire burning in my eyes.

My heart is ablaze
with the flame of triumph
my soul alight
with this fire of success
an eternal inferno
rages within me
and when you peer into my eyes
then you will see
the fire burning within.

...The fire burning within my eyes.

    Awesome topic to write on... only a few things that I would have changed.(Maybe take into consideration the words used when in the context of the poem a little more) (Report)Reply

    Hi There,

    You asked for my honest opinion, I liked it.
    This is a good theme however I feel the idea can be refined, word selection can improve. It needs to mature a little in my opinion.

    never let it go out. The fire is a symbol of powerful energy. Also could
