Be Set Free

I was your purpose

I still am

For I can see it

In your eyes

I understand that

You are petrified

Your thin lips

Search for words

But, neither of us speak

Fear has you bound

In chains I cannot free

For, I can see it

In your eyes

I know your past

Has kept you in chains

And, I am sorry

That I cannot tell you

I am no longer your purpose

So, like a bird

I have to be set free

From the pain

Your chains have brought me

Without a word

I hope one day you’ll see

I did this for you and me

    1. I know. I’m sure it makes it all the more real when you know the story behind the words. It has been healing+given me greater understanding to the decisions that have had to be made. Thankful for poetry.
