    Freedom Lost

    Take away these chains that bind me, set me free. I've grown so tired and weary only God can rescue me. The chains have gotten heavy now they weigh me down. The leaves that once were green have slowly turned to brown. I pretend it's ended, over, done and ceased. And that I'm free and flying like a caged bird when released. I contemplate escape and different strategies to flee. But loosening these shackles evades my mind, body and me. So locked and bound I stay each day and pray for strength. Beg for mercy and reduction of my terms eternal length. Enslaved for life, a victim oppressed by habits I can't break. Keep hope despite the certainty I'll repeat my past mistake. For my sins God will forgive me, for my weakness I'll pay the cost. Though my soul runs free in heaven on this earth my freedoms lost.

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
