Unfettered Conviction

Give me reprieve from the constant

Give me a break from the boredom

Give me respite from the trite and the dry

Give me a path to a calling

Give me relief from the beat of repeat

Give me a test to complete

Give me a challenge to stretch my resolve

Give me the lip of defeat

Give me impeccable reason

Give me a grand proposition

Give me definitive meaning

I’ll show you unfettered conviction
