The War

I feel like I’m choking
I’m gasping for breath
This is the story of how
I came this close to death

I found myself drowning
One miserable day
Adrift in the ocean
My captors at bay

They chuckled in delight
My life slipped away
Until I heard the fighting
The fighting on that day

I had sparked a revolution
A war to the death
They tried to throw me away
But I fought with every dying breath
