Can they break my spirit

by Kiyoshi A. Higashi (author's profile)


I close my eyes & 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,
& 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
& 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.
