Incarcerated but Inspired
12/19/2020

Succeed. I will. At all cost.

I refuse to settle for less.

Incarcerated, though I am,

I am inspired nonetheless.

 

Indomitable. I am.

Determined to strive for more.

Incarcerated, though I am,

I am inspired all-the-more.

 

I am that current that carved canyons.

I am that wind that the world wields.

I am that pull that propels planets.

I am that fire that feeds the fields.

 

So I ask, what door is there that

Can remain shut before me?

Incarcerated, though I am,

Inspired, you will soon be.
