I Uncaged ME!

I Uncaged Me!

I Uncaged Me!

I was jailed!
I was tortured!
I chained…tied…bound!

By who?
You may ask…


I locked myself in,
And threw the keys into the Abyss.

I gulped in the ugly words,
That he poured down my throat…
I shed bitter tears,
As he trampled roughshod over me,
And gave no apologies.

I kissed the dust,
While he rained deathblows,
Down on me.

Then…in a moment…
Just one moment…
I wanted no more!
No more torments!

The scales fell!
I wanted no more!
No more hell…for me!

All in just one kairotic moment.

I scaled the walls,
Of my gloomy dungeon,
And rendered the keys useless.

How did I?


Yes! I forgave him!

My chains broke!
I walk out…free!
I walk out…liberated!
My shackles…they melted,
By the warmth of my free mind.

I walk out of my own prison.
Just because…

I let him go…
