Redemption song

So poignant

Post diagnosis

Yet defiant to the end

Songs of freedom


Every season’s turn

New players take their turn

Defiant to the end


Then they learn the burn

That came with what they earned


Redemption song

Emancipating minds enslaved

Long past

Severing iron chains

It is only in the mind

Where you can find your way

If not, you’ll be a slave

Regardless of what you’ve said

Unless you use it

Unless you prove it

To those songs of freedom
