When the light of liberty is
taken from me, my soul is
veiled, I can't feel or see.
When the waters of the sea
are a dream to me, daily I
become lost, numb to feeling.
When all I have are memories
that invade constantly. How
much longer to end my lonely
As the years progress in this
drab place. Tears fall familiar
on my face.
Through the bars and wire
I see a world of beauty. I
Wait for the day to become free.
Free to soar and indulge in all taken
for granted; a kiss, the ocean, the
love of my family.
For now still tears fall familiar on my
face. With my liberty comes smiles;
my fettered nightmare erased.
Daily I come closer to becoming
unencumbered. I await a free world,
all it’s peach and wonder.
