Caught in a tempest
Winds of fate whipping
I can only give my best
So long as I keep willing


I try to claw my way free
Demons clutch at my ankles
I long for fields so serene
As the past binds me in shackles


Embers and ashes in the air
Stone and rock as far as sight
Now is not the time for fair
For life, I must now fight


Monsters claw at my flesh
Carving at my bare soul
Real or not, I don’t guess
As I fight on the coals


Light shines on me as I dance
To the song of woe and brood
Even as I hold my stance
I will see this night through


Caught in this tempest
Winds of fate and binds
I will give only my best
As I see you on the other side
