Inspiration

Open bright and wide
I see the shock of things to come
Hesitant on the change inside
Where do these new thoughts flow from
Yet excitement seizes control
Trying to tread where life now leads
And I stumble like a foal
I ignore the scrapes that bleed
What is this new sensation
Driving me on when I want to sit
I look out on endless creation
Exploration of it to not quit

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
