A band of roving mercenaries captures you while you are in a foreign land. They will hold you hostage until your government gives in to their demands. While they chain your body, they cannot break your spirit. You talk silently to yourself and tell yourself stories that get you through your days and help you escape through your imagination. You force your mind to work in a ways it has never worked before, and eventually you find yourself even ”freer” that you were before you were chained.
What are the words you say to yourself to keep your mind alive? What are the words you recite to keep your spirit free?
