Can they break my spirit

by Kiyoshi A. Higashi (author's profile)


Can they Break My Spirit

I close my eyes and picture freedom,
My only will is to survive.
Tortured souls behind these walls.
My sentence my demise.

Life is what they gave me,
so it's here I wait to de.
No love no hugs no kisses,
and this ain't the place to cry

I've seen so many loose their life,
Behind these walls of pain.
With all this evil lurking,
I don't know if I'm still sain.

I try to remain humble,
I try to look for hope
and while in the hands of hate,
somehow I still will cope.

They can take my freedom,
but can they break this man.
Can they break my spirit,
I know that is the plan.
