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.
