    They told me today that there are no such things as dragons
    They told me that I would never go off on an adventure like in my books
    Said that those adventures didn’t happen
    That they were just made up
    They told me today I would go through high school
    And college
    And get a job
    Work until I retire
    Sit at home until I die
    They told me dragons don’t exist
    So what is it I see out of the corner of my eyes?
    I protest
    Rolling up my sleeve
    I have scars
    Maybe you should be supervised when you cook
    They say
    Losing interest in the conversation
    I turn away
    Trying desperately to save myself
    From their words
    From their explanations
    For their words are cold
    They don’t burn
    They freeze
    Freeze the imagination
    The burn of the fire is better than the numbness of the ice
    For the murderous heat of the fire can also warm
    But the ice
    Can only
    Kill

    Hope I didn't torture you with my writing.
