to speak but cannot form

to speak but cannot form the words that would fulfill my thoughts desire.

to gain freedom but scared to face the breakout of war against another.

yes, yes this is how you and i must feel, this is how you and i try to explain,

though neither can comfort the other the way they wish to be comforted, let me say this:

"your thoughts...they must be so incredible since you imagined them;

not only that, but also powerful like you."

"you are like a moth attracted to fire. yes sweet moth, you are inlove with fire.

even though that fire may kill you, you are still brave enough to face it; 

that's what makes you rare and adored."

"so sweet moth, forget your worries and destroy the pain.

for you cannot have freedom without some war."
