Dream of an Eastern Girl – Revolution Flame

http://revolutionflame.com/2012/01/dream-of-eastern-girl/

Here comes I,
Me and my battered hands
Bearing these scarlet curves
Make them look better
While they are tightly bound
In those invisible chains
Of realations,
Of society,
Of luck.
My fate is in the hands of dad
I smile with the consent of mom
I am bestowed life
A bed,
A dress,
and some food.
I dream of unusual stuff,
Of breath,
Of flight,
and of some space.
My wealth consists of
A cold heart,
A tear in eye,
and an empty hand.
