There is no place
     that I can go.

There is no road
     for me to travel.

I blaze my path
     from nothingness.

I am a dragon at heart.

My future lies
     ahead of me.

My past, so heavy
     I cannot fly.

The friends I have
     help bear the weight.

I am a dragon at heart.

Fear does not elude me
     whenever trouble strikes.

Despite my desperation,
     I stand brave and proud.

I am a dragon at heart.
This poem is a kind of precursor to a song by the same title that I want to write. It's been through several iterations, and the refrain is rather sparse, but meh. :P I still like it.

This poem kinda details my struggle with life as I know it, and adds a li'l bit about my belief that I'm a dragon in spirit. :)

Very nice poem.

I know how ya feel. I feel like a dragon too. Probably because my personality is like that of one and so on. I can get pretty angry sometimes, I like destruction, and I have fangs(seriously).

But again. Very well done. Faved.

I'm not too fond of destruction. Dragon's aren't necessarily bloodthirsty evil beings. ;P

I never said they were. Read some of my TF stories. The dragons in my stories aren't evil(except for in one or two of them). I'm also writing a story about two half-dragons and they're not evil. They're actually very kind hearted.

Anyways this is still a good poem.

Nice Poem! :)

I like that melancholic ''ring'' it has to it...
without being depressing...
Actually I think the refrain is quite uplifting...

''I am a dragon at heart''...

sounds a little like a mantra...

Very nice! :D
