Shackles of Life

These shackles which binds me
Awaiting a day, I shall break free
Fleeing from trials – tribulations
That leads me astray, lost in mind
In such sadness, nearly suffocating

I feel, I am alone, knowing I am not
Praying for the sun to shine, anew
Warming these cold winter nights,
the ray of light that guides my soul
Yet, here I now linger in darkness

In the profound depths of my despair 
An all-consuming force holds no end
As on the extreme edge I now stand
Seeing closely the abyss that awaits
Drowning in the deepest of sorrows

In close surroundings, immoral acts
As serpent tongues persist to maim
Spitting vile venom, in their wake
Without remorse, query to inflictions
Pushing over the edge, into the void

Where darkness, now becomes a haven
As the night brings solace unto the soul
Tranquility found in an orb of self-creation
Searching deeply for the strength to surface
Into the gift of loves grace, to enlightenment

Basic instincts rule the core of this existence
Where feline senses come to full awareness
Knowing despite the fall, I shall arise anew
Landing on all fours, pouncing back on track
Taking the reins in finding a way back home
