Oath of the Free

Adrift my mind, daily steals
the line, the rod, the fish, the reel
though fortune blessed my spirit free
I'm chained to passion drowning me

No salvage for a listless soul,
no change to pay this aging toll
a worthy memory, marked to be
strong as the ship that charges me. 

I'll file my nails to the hilt
and saw the shackles hitched to guilt
fight hordes of voices, unresigned
to live a life that's undefined.
to live a life that's undefined.
