Unyielding Spirit to Grow

by Mackenzie Schmidt

To have an indomitable spirit,
One must look past the cynicism reality breeds,
And look for the future even when humanity bleeds.

Continue even with the black cats,
and swarming crows.
Hold onto the pain Even if it manifests and grows,
let it corrode what you used to know.

This life will leave you tortured,
Constrained to an indoctrinated state of thought,
Breathe and let go of the lies you have,
Been taught.

To have a soul that can soar,
Don't let your disbelief haunt the dreams of others.
Care for fellow man even if he isn't your brother.
