The Fortress

Inside the locked fortress
I was lonely and forlorn.
I will be free again soon.

I will walk through the gate
with my head held high.
The reasons I was chained are clear.
Everyone remembers the news.

What can I do to free my spirit?

I will remember that I can change.
I will release my future today.
