A prison is a place of restriction, lack of freedom, frustration, and obscurity. It is a place of suffering and punishment.
Conversely, a palace is the home of a king. A place of no limitations. A place of abundance.

You may be in a physical prison, a financial prison (no freedom to do what you want to do because of your lack of resources), or an emotional prison (bound by your fears and anxiety) unable to reach your potential.
