Caged Soul

Caged Soul

A Poem by Greg Skura

 

 

 

I was a caged soul
Empty and un-whole
Held and restrained
By thoughts of pain
That I know were untrue
What else could I do?
Emotions ran deeper
And I was their keeper
I discovered the capacity
To love everyone equally
 
And even now, that I am free
Hints of personality influence me
So if I appear aloof or withdrawn
I am sending love to everyone
And if you look up
A blank stare on my face
There is no smirk where the lips place
Look a little closer at my disguise
I am smiling at you with my mind and
Loving you with my eyes
 
This soul is now free
And forever it will be

This is a very beautiful, incredible, extrodinary poem.
It really opened my eyes and I could really feel the emotion that you were trying to set forth to the reader. I really enjoy your writing, it's all very well written. You have a fabulous way with words, and you use your talent which is wonderful. This poem is very inspiring and crosses a wonderful, important message to the reader. The title is a perfect fit, and that's why I chose it. It's interesting. Something I figured I can reltae to. Something many people can relate to . Very well written.

I really enjoy your message in this poem. It's great to let go of inhibitions, but the self-conscious part of us can hold on. True freedom is free of everything. Good write, and thanks for your review.

Your work always seems to have a hint of wisdom and compassion. As a writer you seem to understand people well. Kudos on this.

Ahhh yes! Wonderfully inspiring and insightful write. To set the soul free... with love. The ability to receive comes from the ability to give. Very nice! Love the meter and rhyme as well. :)

Beautiful.

I liked the line about appearing aloof and withdrawn. Not normally a fan of rhythmic rhyme, I nonetheless liked this piece for its honesty and for the simple method of writing down the conflicts within, to get them out. I also liked the part about the departing smirk. Nicely done.
