Poems

Holding me back!

When I was restricted
by the bonds of the world
I was resilient
kept marching bright and bold
It is a curse
this empathy in me
dwelling deep down
within the calm I keep
Is the world itself a curse
pulling me in
further in its embrace
not letting go
forcing slowly yet subtly
the love for the material
pushing in me
a love for another soul?

I was well on my way
I had built my path
to rid myself
of this worldly wrath
Yet now I find myself questioning
all together destroying
my path towards freedom
from this death like grip
I cannot let go
of what lives down below
of my need for love
and humanly touch
One that dictates my being
even without seeing
the force that grounds me
keeps me from fleeing!
