Chains

In these chains I am found
In these chains I am bound

This one to friend
This one to pretend
This one to family
This one to safety

In these chains I am found
Chains that keep me down

This one is all rusted
This to someone trusted
One for an oath in the night
One for a threat made in a fight
One that keeps me sane
One that holds back pain
Many to Obligations or a job
More chains you can’t rob

In these chains I am found
Chains that keep me sound

They hold me so I don’t descend
Blocking any thought to amend
Bar my path to the edge
Safe from the unknown they pledge

From these chains do not free
Without these chains I cannot be
