Broken Chains Cracked Splintered Scattered Lost chained... On my knees twisted by the weight of too much to carry far. What must I do? If I could stand I would be wider than the seas. There would be limitless depths to me. But on the shallow tide I must cling. I have no choice. Held down by powers greater than me I weep... Can they hear me? If so why don't they come? Why? Slowly, every so slightly, I feel a crack against the puckered skin left to fall off the bones. But - A fire burns A fire rages on A fire that destroys the fear A fire that promises release A fire that burns away the chains A fire that ignites the pain that will help me be me again.
