Within four walls

By Samantha Scott

Within for walls I wait and hope

Within four walls I breathe and cope

Most of the time I cope so well

But, just sometimes I don’t know how

How to deal with the crushing loss

With Time’s great clock, now green with moss

Physics’ avaricious appetite

Will never defeat my cause to fight

To fight for freedom, for choice, for air

I will breathe – I will live – I will not despair

For whilst there is a heart that beats within

Within these four walls a warrior grins

You may have purged a life that could’ve been

But you will not take my hope nor my determination to win

You waged this war but I stand strong

Within these four walls I see the sun

It blazes brightly with defiance:

The darkness will not overcome.
