Growing stronger from within,
refusing to be
deceived by the voice
that echoes of the wrong
and chastises through the fear.

Grasping at hope until now
fleeting and elusive.
Ridding the soul of
the worry and confusion
imprisoning the mind.

Conviction unwavering,
the stoic survive.
The power to change
is born from need and despair,
molding the weak to reclaim life.
