Chains

January 28, 2021

Do I have chains attached to me,
Invisible that I don’t see,

Chains that keep me bound, restrained?
I don’t remember being chained.

I guess the chain formed link by link,
Became a part of how I think.

Why stay in chains? I can be free.
They need not be a part of me.

I’ll cast them off, leave them behind,
Set free my heart, my soul, my mind,

Set free to let God’s love flow through.
Perhaps you have some chains on you.

Some bitterness, a past event,
A memory that won’t relent.

Chains from the past can hold us back.
Relentless iron provides no slack.

Learn from the past then let it go.
Get on with life, see blessings flow.
