Today, the sky was on fire, the sky was on fire till the clouds doused the flames but the embers simmer with freedom's song in its entrails, humming red blood lava fed by centuries of oppression. The clouds rain. The downpour ends. Embers turn aflame the borders tamed by subservience. Fires of freedom rebel, burning the bonds of hate. Humanity will find its heart and spine, line with love a new world, a new phase in the history of mankind. Soaring, a new Icarus will fly to redefine old myths.
