Captivity is Consciousness, So's Liberty

No rack can torture me,

My soul's at liberty

Behind this mortal bone

There knits a bolder one

 

You cannot prick with saw,

Nor rend with scymitar.

Two bodies therefore be;

Bind one, and one will flee.

 

The eagle of his nest

No easier divest

And gain the sky,

Than mayest thou,

 

Except thyself may be

Thine enemy;

Captivity is consciousness,

So's liberty.

 

EMANCIPATION

Emily Dickinson
