It took me to be in-caged to let go of my inner rage 
A powerful soul can't be out staged 
I found me behind these bars 
It took my downfall to come this far 
In this darkness I found my soul 
Strong , courageous and even bold 
No longer blinded through these bars I see 
My body entrapped but my spirits free 
I had to crawl to get back up 
I'm caged I'm hidden but never stuck 
My voice my weapon I strike with stealth  
Blessed with my insight I found true wealth
