Hidden Within

Tightening its hold within my chest

Gripping as though holding lifeline

Breaking free eludes, imprisoned

Laying hidden inside yet outward pressed.


Fluttering its wings within my mind

Spreading wide as though to soar

Intending to loose my spirit, failing

Surrendered already to that which binds.


Resigning its place within my heart

Leaving behind sadness as night

Lamenting a past now gone, ended

Concerned over what life will next impart.


Starting its journey once again begun

Stumbling down unlit trial as though lost

Praying for the light of new day, wishful

Fretful is the spirit but what’s done is done.
