Independence… by Claire Nixon

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!
