Sometimes it is best to leave

The chains that lock up freedom

Though said to be for our  protection

Blind eyes see through the deception

As the light shines

Into the darkness of evil

Presented by another name

Our souls were not meant to be chained

Nor our heart’s love

Freedom awaits us in diverse places

Where the sky meets the earth

And we dwell in the place of liminality

Where the veil is rent in two

Breaking the chains of earth

  1. I like this poem as it spells out how we are not to be chained down. We are meant to be free while learning what we can by experience and by education. Writing is yet another way to learn. great poem Lorraine !!

    Yes absolutely. Though maybe people sometimes night think not, because I am rather like the Psalmist, and question God and even yell at Him. I HAVE to be totally honest, and God can take it. I am writing a book about my experiences with God and blindness and disability. It is VERY honest. But it hasvtaken me from my poetry a bit because it isbtime consuming and takes much thought and meditation. ❤️

  3. Yes, Lorraine writing a book takes time. Finding the characters and what you want them to do. I create them and spread them over tree Books which I hope as the sugar was not running when we arrive, it has been real in our life yes.!!

    My book is not Fiction. It is about Disability and God, and is a spiritual bok called “Treasures of the Dark.” A lot about blindness in it, and not being able to breathe, and not being able to walk. But it is about hope, snd all the truals and agonies you go through, like the Psalmist, to get to hope. It reauires a LOT of meditation, whichI try to do every day and often for long periods of the day. It is how I get through.
