Awakening of the Warrior


Awakening of the Warrior

You hold the lock and key buried within the rising and falling of that borrowed chest
Encased in the prison of your ribs she screams
Suffocating, reaching out blindly, seeking the surface
Freedom comes at a price high enough to keep the most
Brilliant soul chained beneath the thickest of masks

Who knew flesh could turn dungeon
Smile a chant of deceit
and veins manacles

The present view a ghost in a shell
numb and molded to live out Dante’s hell

Suppressed she shatters and alive expands
Breaking molds of antiquity, freedom in modernity
Acceptance revoked once truth is spoken

Integrity comes at a price but weighs heavier than dishonor to the soul
