Still Holdin

I have been exiled from society,

A threat and a menace is what they call me.

As I sit and count those who are real,

I’m high in spirits, even while confined to concrete and steel.

The things that I cherish are so far away,

But I am not like the branch;

I will not wither or sway.

As I continue to strive and struggle for existence,

I do it with pride, knowledge, and persistence.

I refuse to be dissuaded by those whose spirits have died,

Because I know only the strong survive.

They still don’t get it and will never understand,

That you can’t imprison the mind of a man.
