(There's a fire burning in my eyes)

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 thats no surprize,
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 wthin me
and when you peer into my eyes
then you will see
the fire burninig within.

...The fire burning within my eyes.

    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. (Report) Reply

    A very uplifting and inspiring write. Yes do keep the fire burning and
    never let it go out. The fire is a symbol of powerful energy. Also could
    be a symbol of youth and vitality. Very motivational. Congratulations on
    being number one in the poet world Allen. (Report) Reply

    Today the 121'st Tibetan burnt himself to death, they have all died with the fire of hope burning in their eyes. You are fortunate to have the freedom and gift of life to continue writing. Write for them. Tashi delek (Report) Reply

    Fantastic poem Allen. There is fire in you and hence you are in the league of classic poets
    A car starts with the pressing ignition button or key. When you ignite your heart with inspirational thoughts
    that will you in the road of victory. Success is above all what you achieve there against odds.

    My heart is ablaze
    with the flame of triumph
    my soul alight
    with this fire of success
    an eternal inferno
    rages with in me
