Bonds… #OctPoWriMo2018 #Day 26

How is it that these bonds are strong,

When barely do they constrain?

A wiser man could untangle them

Again, and again, and again.

Perhaps I haven’t learned enough

To find my own way out.

From these bonds that tie me down

And sabotage my route.

I know the answer’s out there,

Not far beyond my reach.

Perhaps if I dive deep enough

I will find a way to breach.

And finally trod a path that’s true

To get me on my way.

Dismantling these bonds that tie me down

In this, to God, I pray.
