wishing for freedom

Wishing for freedom 
in a world bound by chains 
a desperate attempt 
to have it all again 

just one more chance 
is all it would take 
to make right the wrongs 
and make it all ok 

how did it all slip 
so very far away 
at what point 
did it go astray 

not sure how
it got to this point 
these chains and bonds, 
squeeze a little tighter 

the things from the past 
come back yet again 
haunting and reminding me 
I cannot escape
there simply is
no freedom  here.
