Wrapped and bound in the chains
of prison
the fire burns deeply, roars
with life
inside of me
setting me free

Moisture, tiny particles
of life
letting me cry, letting me
feel life
I have a way
to keep me free

I refuse to stand and watch
life go out
it's not my role
I will play
one step at a time
will keep me free

I have a way
to reach the sky
take the moon for my mind
stars for my eyes
rainbow for my life
and that will keep me free

One step at a time...




 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

Very nice Rainbow, Yes I agree "one step at a time" is the only way we can move ahead. Thanks for the insight.

RainbowGirl -

One step at a time is the only way to take
this trip through life.
Bless you, gal.

Tiny particles of moisture? *G* I have it on good authority that your buckets of tears have been solely responsible for the increase in England's water table! LOL (And before you find it necessary to retaliate, yes, I do remember that 'I' live in a swamp! LOL)

It's so good to have you back, dear friend... and your poem is lovely... as are you!!!

I can not only agree with all of the above
I would like to send you the sign of peace and love
But I still have not yet figured out
How to post a Dove here out
So take my word to easy your pain
A friend perhaps you have just gain'
I like the way your poems come out
"One step at the time" I shout
Thanks for such intensive piece



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
