soul fights

listen close you will hear a strangled shriek
a cry for salvation from dungeons
A struggle to free beyond its bounds

you will see an exertion
From chains unbreaking
you will notice tiny in giants
cracks and loose knots

But with ultimate victory wrapped in a smile
A defiant roar to keep away the demons

A thankful heart pounding peace to the inside
Burning incense in the middle of the battlefield
Aware of contentment even in lack

look close and you will notice a spirit in freedom
Amidst fellows in the prison and its circus

It knows freedom in gratitude
And the grace of a chance in another day.
