Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
A damaged childhood defines this man's emotional disposition

Shackled

by Tedd Turton

A sense of wonder, relentlessly searching for magic, eyes, a puppy, that gentle light.
Beneath his beauty, shackled, confused, holding his breath.
Catch a glimpse, visions, tomorrow is shining.
Don't fall, dutifully denying yourself riches, contentment and love.
Now, concentrate, think of nothing.
