Yearning for a chance
To feel peace within my heart
These ups and downs can change a man
Who seeks a brand new start.
Trapped within this concrete cell
My companions are memories
Holding onto faith within
Knowing one day I’ll be free.
Mountains I’ve come across
But I’ve climbed them to the top
And although there’s times I’ve stumbled and fell
I’ve picked myself up with one thought…
To overcome we first must conquer
The battle from within
And put the pieces all together
Then we can begin the transformation of ourself
To a landscape of inner strength
And see the beauty we possess
Before it is too late.
I sit here and I write
With one purpose on my mind
To extract the world’s blessings
With a heart that’s pure and kind.
