My Poems

Poem: Prisoner No More

PRISONER NO MORE

Prisoner No More

You sentenced me

my shackles
fear
hate
shame
self-loathing

resentment, memories
of pain inflicted
bind me to you.

I drag my chains
heavy with despair
rusted with tears

long to be set free.

Blame burns my mind.
I cannot, will not forget,
yet my heart seeks peace.

Liberation lies within.
No lock can withstand
the force of forgiveness.

I alone hold the key.
