my spirit is a roaring sea

Encontrei esse texto no retweet de um amigo, no meio da semana, e ele prova como a internet é incrível por nos possibilitar esbarrar nesse tipo de coisa. Leiam, pra entender.


I’m born to ride the crashing wave
To conquer each challenge anew
Ready to fight, forever brave
Ready to face a foe like you

Out from the shadows you appear
And steal me from my sheltered home
The day has come, the day we fear
Now I must face you on my own

You have me now, you didn’t ask
Lust and greed your only reason
But all that strength is just a mask
Stripped away, I see you demon

Your stench, your breath, your icy touch
Are not enough to close my eyes
And through the pain I know this much
I’ll never be your helpless prize

So we begin our violent dance
You have the rage, but no control
Don’t you realise there is no chance
Against the thunder of my soul?

Beyond the darkness into light
Is a warrior breaking free
Did you think that I would not fight?
I had no doubt, I count on me

Beyond my pain beyond my fear
For no one will I bend a knee
My heart is fire, my mind is clear
My spirit is a roaring sea

Ele faz parte desse quadrinho, escrito e desenhado por Gavin Aung Than, e você pode encontrar a arte dele aqui. Gav trabalhou na indústria do design por oito anos, até não aguentar mais o tédio do mundo corporativo e seguir seu sonho de desenhar quadrinhos. Go, Gav!

O autor cita que essa tira, em particular, começou com o Inktober, onde ilustradores/cartunistas/etc se desafiam a desenhar algo todos os dias durante um mês.
