Inside of me, somewhere deep,
A fire rages on, insatiable.
An urge to reach higher.
A thirst that is unquenchable.

The cacophony on the outside
is drowned by the silence inside,
A silence that screams to me,
To reach that star, to dream.

At nights, when I lay in bed,
I dream in a sleepless state,
Of the places I have to go to,
Of the heights I have to climb.

Life's journey is many colours,
I am painted now in just one.
It is the other colours of the rainbow
That I desire, that will one day be mine.
