A ChainA chain is rugged, restricting and strong.A Chain8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Held by those who are too scared to let go.
Long or short, its bond does not break.
The victims are stopped short of their desires.
Such selfishness and doubt, I could not imagine.
For I hold my heart, rather the chain.
It is scared and tough, but healed.
Distance plays no part, its bond does not break.
The privileged are left to their hopes and dreams.
Such caring and devotion, I strive to maintain.

Who am I
To question, to judge, or simply
I can be no more than what I am,
And what I am, I do not like.
Who are you
To question me, to make your
Cold hearted assumptions
Of disjointed syntax
I can see no way forwards,
The past snapping at my heels
But an instant now, now, now
To bring a swift, untimely end
Would be a relief.
But I cannot end here.
I cannot leave
The sentence unfinished
To be ended by someone else's pen.
I will write my own ending,
I will not succumb to hopelessness
Be wretched and forgotten
As you lift my head.
But I was the one who had to open my eyes.
Oh cursed day I lost my faith,
Hope fallen, love gone.
I cannot let that happen.
I am worth more through you
Every life, sacred.
Do not cross out my name.
I will not go quietly,
I will find meaning, obscure as it may be,
But it will be there.
I will seek and I will find.

What happens now?
Will I go before those and impress?
Or fall and submit to all?
