A chapter in the book Dear Life

Dear Chains


These are separate chapters
about different subjects in life.
I always personalize the theme
and write it in form of a letter,
in different styles and forms.

Dear Chains, 


I stop to look, find nothing around my feet,

 still feel your dreadful sensation.

Are you of my own mind’s creation?


To take a few steps is becoming arduous

when I drag you, heavy chains,

along with the rest of my pains.


Oh, how I wish I could get rid of you all,

take off your loads of deep blues.

as I do with agonizing shoes.


If I caused you to be, my strength of mind

will manage to craft a brand new key,

to unlock and set my feet free.


Then bare foot I will leap and run again,

to proclaim my control tower

and regain my lost willpower.


                      Sincerely yours,




We do it to ourselves... much too often.
I am trying to remind myself to look closely and find out, if I am the one causing myself trouble and what I can do about it. Not easy, but having reached sixty, what is the use of getting older without getting wiser?? LOL!

Thank you MoonWillow, for the use of your charming artwork.
