Jailbreak

Never thought I’d escape,

Walls so thick; shackles and gates.

Fears had its hand on me,

Kept me from traveling.

But now I’m unraveling.
Freedom’s mirages,

Despair so bottomless.

Then I got caught up in this,

Forgot I’m an optimist.
Broken hearts shatter,

Millions of pieces; all of which matter.

Yet they’re separated,

Corroded, deteriorated.

Clean and sweep,

Fight and wheep.

You’ll never collect all the pieces,

That’s not where the peace is.
So insanity beckoned and I followed,

Called me in deeper until it swallowed.

All of the light within,

Where does this life begin?
I see it now – breaking through,

Streams of light, bold and true.

Like a sunburst through the clouds,

A peace comes down and surrounds.
I look down and there’s the key,

Pick it up and now I’m free,

Captive and prisoner to only me.
No more can this heart take,

Fists clenched and longing’s ache,

I’m running now – Jailbreak!
Hold me down and I’ll break free,

Can’t contain the fire in me.
