I am not the victim of the world I see.
How can I be the victim in a world that can be completely undone if I do choose? My chains are loosened. I can dorp them off merely by desiring to do so. The prison door is open. I can leave simply by walking out. Nothing holds me in this world. Only my wish to stay keeps me a prisoner. I would give up my insane wishes and walk into the sunlight at last.
