Not Afraid

I am not afraid of pain and death
They only make the body cold.

What I fear is being caged
Locked up, no voice, trapped
And tormented, tortured for your pleasure
Like my grandfather and his grandfather before.

The caging of the heart, of the soul
Of the me that is me
Ever wanting, never finding
This is what I fear...a loss of hope.

No, I am not afraid of pain and death
For with them comes freedom!
