So the truth is what you wish to hear?
Is that why you're really here?
Know it comes at greatest cost;
you can't retrieve that which is lost.
If freedom is what you crave;
then hope is really yours to save.
For if you wish to live a life,
worth living without pain and strife.
Your destiny must cast aside;
to ascend to dreams of foolish pride.
And live your life just as you dream;
no matter how hard it may seem.
You have now opened pandoras box;
what remains once you replace the locks?
