The chains that bind cut deep...tearing at the human skin beneath
Leaving sores that lay open...exposed to the outside world
And as one cut heals, a sudden movement is made
Leaving but a deeper wound to contend with
If only the chains were off or if there was a way to loosen them
Then the pain would ease
Who has the key to these chains
Searching...trying to find a key
Trying to find a way free from the chains
But even when the barriers are removed there will always be scars
Scars that are deep...penetrating far below the skin
Visible still to the world
Hence, will one actually be free
Or just be able to move without inflicting pain on ones self
Knowing only God and those he loves will not see the scars
For they know what it took to remove those chains
And they will medicate the wounds with their love
In their eyes he is free indeed
Free to ride off on his white horse
And they will be there to show him the path to follow
And reminding him never to look back
For behind him lies a world of prejudices
But ahead of him are visions of castles
As long as he keeps his eyes toward his dreams
And not on the nightmares that are left behind
