Out of foul enchantment
Is never easy.
It takes determination
Cold and steady
As the wire cutters you need
To make a hole in the fence
Big enough to crawl through,
Despite the cloud
Of poisons you breathe
Like a toxic rainbow
Of sweet lies and promises
Meant to keep you blind
Helpless and content –
And even if the odds
Are all against you
Each step away
Will clear the air
Until you breathe free
Of those intoxications
Meant to keep you dreaming
In the dark,
Your life no more
Than one long sleepwalk
Around a prison yard.

And isn’t this new freedom
worth the risk
Of all you have to win it?
