Freedom from Bondage

Freedom from Bondage

I want to shed my earthly remains,
and fly off into the great unknown,
where I can be,
free from all earthly bondage.

Away from the agony of the mind.
Away from the agony of the spirit.
Where my soul is free,
of this everlasting fear in my mind.

If only I could sprout a couple of wings,
like a little bird that is taking,
its first steps towards adulthood,
and learning to fly high into the sky.

My mind is filled with agony.
I wonder to myself,
what it would be like,
to be free from all worldly woes.

What it would be like,
to wake up every morning,
looking at the day ahead,
without fear or trepidation about what is ahead.

I wish I could leave everything behind.
and climb to the top of Mt. Everest
and stand at the top of the world,
letting my spirit soar.

It would be wonderful,
to stand atop the Everest,
and flap my wings
and take off even higher into the unknown.

But alas, I have no such luck,
for I am bound to my earthly woes,
by chains of Steel,
that refuse to break no matter how much I struggle.

But I have hope.
Someday even these relentless chains,
must weaken and break,
giving in to my pulls and tugs.

I await that day,
when the chains break,
and I will be free from bondage,
and soar away like a bird into the wind.
