Bondage

Bondage

A Poem by MOON



There it is again that singular fear

That keeps us from all we hold dear

The promises we tell ourselves the lies

Stillborn dreams that often dies

In the cold ember of disgrace

Is the mirrored shadow of our face

All the mountains that we climb

Is not worth the toss of a dime

Huddled in that circle in that space

The echoes its all a perfect waste

 

The yardstick was never ours to call

It’s the human bondage, It’s our fall

We can be our own worse enemy. A hostage of our own making and what:s more we know that we have the key to break the cycle if we wish. We hold ourselves back. It takes courage to end this cycle and to fulfill our dreams. Welll written Moon. It isn't easy to eliminate all the negatives and just focus on positives.

thank you Christine , be safe.
We do have a habit of judging everything against the superiority of man, but quietly discard any negatives that might be attached to us, as we must show ourselves in the best light possible at all times...and there is the problem; the ego of mythical perfection.
We contain our all in portrayal of good and forget that even those we look up to are flawed, being human and all.
If only we could put as much effort into doing and being than we do with excuses and reasons not to.
We are such an overly complex bunch, us humans.
Really liked end lines, we always pick the hard way to do things, don’t we?

Thanks lorry , good to see you around.
are we held hostage by our own dreams, or the lack of fulfilling them?
perhaps...
