The Poet Who Lies Within

Residing deep within ever yearning to be free Lies the poet banished for troubles other than he Caught behind bars of fate and shame It is not he who is to blame Yet from these confines he can longingly see The intention this world holds out for he As clearly can be shown from the lord above The grandeur it is for this poet to love With elegance and grace unsurpassed in this world And a need for his verse yet never unfurled He’s long fought to cry out for this life But waits restrained by ravages rife The time is long past for his eloquence shown The poet must finally determine his own Case aside the façade he erected before Embracing the wonder beyond this false door And in so doing confront his past To live the love forever at last
