Shackled - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Watching you walk down a pathway of darkness, creating a
prison for yourself, that I will not let you live in.
Wanting you only to be free and independent, not strapped
down by sorrow.
There are no rules to grief, you are thinking too much
under covers of loneliness, I too, do the same thing at
times, so I know.
Thinking and remembering as much as you'd like, but you
must be free to do it and right now you are shackled like
It's making your love be filled with only emptiness and
You need to be free of those things in order to celebrate
the love and life you had together.
The way you are going is painting a picture of your love
with chains and it will soon become the burden it never
was in life.
Take my hand, set yourself free to live and love, don't
defile your love and let it become ugly.
Set yourself free, stop isolating, talk, I will always
listen and hear your heart.
