There is a demon of the mind

Only attacking vulnerable souls

The claws they seem to bind

Opposites that are bound to fall


Lingering on the unlikely is hope

Most lose it, reach for it

This is not the reason to lose sight

Persevere it, touch it


Locked in this place, the fear

Of never returning, never leaving

The darkness - my eyes it seems to sear

There is no breadth of sun


No, distress not my child it's not resolute

A day will come you do not expect

The chains will break, you could fly

There is a power you hold from this neglect


This sworn secrecy cages me

These locked thoughts threaten

But perhaps you are right

I am not yet beaten
