My Flame

Two tonnes press on my heart,
To me a great load,
A weight that set the world apart
The weight fell and caused a spark and it glowed!

So now I am Different 
Completely Unique,
Free from Imprisonment 
Completely set free.

And with this heart set afire 
And the weight obliterated
Nothing to hard,or to dire
Because now my worries are exterminated!

But soon one day came a traveling breeze
And put out my brightened flame.
But I blew on it and Said "Please-
The more you try the more my heart stays the same!"
