Unlock Unlock the fettered bonds
That binds the heart and seals the sound
Waves and bellows crowd my soul
In my pain, I am alone.
I wait for 'open sesame', soul's release
I seek freedom… a shattering unease
Why should I be bound like this?
Locked in and out, no beauty or bliss.
Yet, in my depth I see… freedom
As I try to grasp its slithering form
Slipping away into crevices deep
Hiding from my faith-filled leap
I want this freedom but how do I make it mine?
An answer… For this I pine.
