Breaking Inner Strait Jackets


Tempting inner strait jackets of rage, pulling at the ropes,
tying together years of anger, are the desires of breaking
loose forever.

Past memories have had a stranglehold for too long, searching
everywhere for some help, afraid to accept any of it until now.

Fear is still there, but desire of overcoming it has become
greater by far than at any other time.

Life must be cut away from inner physical entities, so
personality and talent may grow and mature.

Tendencies towards dependency have finally been nipped and
refused to grow beyond ever again.

Pain of anger and rage, enclosed in a tomb-like barrier has
hurt long enough, not wanting the sorrow they bring.

Reaching towards the child within, preparing to become the
person they are.
