The Chain

Don't tug
Or stumble in this unknown darkness
Pull the chain with ease
Allow spacing and my step in line
Reducing shackles pressure: so we, don’t bleed
Each link a story and dream denial
Things precious, not now, valued to our needs
Let the chain rattle a song to our discomfort
Things we don't have to achieve
Tell our tale of sorrows unto the animals
A heart empty cry without its seed
Turn your shame into the night
Pray to your God, you would not heed
Weep tears for the trees and your families
Beware the anger and horror of their rage
Let’s us, now, sing of lost freedom
Allow the snake to slither its way
This link is absence consideration
These links desires and hopes no more to weigh
Being lead but not by our discretion
Someone else's lie and our delusion to obey

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Captivity is something most think they are apart from and all our slaves. We are within a Matrix. We do serve the principalities On High. Brethren under hell's restrictions. You are place and tormented. In its host raging fire. All flesh is victim to those who fell.
