Independence

Independence

Listen…
Thud-thud
Can you hear it?
Thud-thud
It’s the beat of my heart.
Thud-thud
I shall live on.
Thud-thud
My tortured soul
Is not willing to rest.
Thud-thud-thud
This war has just begun.
I’ve learned how to laugh
In the face of evil now.
Thud-thud-thud
You can no longer hurt me,
As long as I follow
The beat of my heart.
Thud-thud-thud
Another day beckons.
Another day of torment.
Thud-thud
No!
Not this day
Or
Any other day.
Thud-thud
You may have won
The battles,
But today
I declare Victory.
Thud-thud

Listen…
Thud-thud
Do you hear that?

Thud-thud
It’s the beat of my heart.
Thud-thud
And I live on.
Thud-thud
Thud!
