I fought my way out of the chains that bind me

And the bars that cage me;

Now a landscape of open wilderness greets my eyes

And tempts my feet to flee into the freedom

That awaits me with eager anticipation.

Thus, I shall chase after the dreams I lost

During my time of imprisonment,

And let my feet lead me to where they wish,

For they stem from my heart

And the poem that beats eternally within.

To freedom, carelessly and wildly running,

That is the path I will go,
With reckless abandon my spirit shall find wings

And raise up beyond the shadows behind me

Toward the endless, timeless sky of forever.

And there, I shall be free.
