The Invincibles

Cage them; they’ll dream of freedom

Break their wings, yet they’ll strive towards flight

Break their spirit, and you’ll have but soulless captives

Try to conquer; they’ll fight

Be a usurper; they’ll rebel

Be a murderer, and you’ll only rule over carcasses

You’ll make your mark for sure

Walk down the path to glory indeed

Yet, you’ll be all alone

Their haunting screams robbing your mind of peace

Your heart: heavier than stone

And a dark storm raging within

– Saumya Patki
