The Chains That Bind

The Chains That Bind short poem

Photo by Kevin Doncaster


As a human race, we all wish for one simple thing:
Freedom.
The freedom to be,
The freedom to love,
The freedom to be heard.
But, from this wish of freedom, we all become slaves.
We are bound by the chains of desire.
No one can escape their cold, iron grasp.
But, the weight of these metal tendrils can be different for everyone.
A child’s chains are light and almost as thin as a thread,
But an adult’s chains can weigh heavily upon weary shoulders.
We all experience the pain that the chains bring,
And we always will until it sets our final breath free.

Chains

Chains long poem

Brought over in physical chains, treated like insects. The belief that one’s background, determines who he is and will be. Though times have passed, the chains remain. Not only for those who were brought in it, but all those who

Of Time And Chains

Of Time And Chains short poem

A quest for celestial insanity brings some comfort. Somewhere the script had failed. Only man was not responsible for the exiled sun. No longer the earth obeys the numbers. Wait, my mother I will enter into your bones and increase
