A prisoner within my soul
Menacing manacles mounting toll
Silent surrender smothering suppression
Held and shackled stilled expression
Time recaptured past visions present be
Now known as what I have brought upon me
Shed the hurt and many a tear
So gone the constraint, so gone the fear
Touched by TRUTH and GOD’S knowing care
Self freed of delusion this dark despair
Mindscapes of lifetimes here and past
Revelations known and BEING ever last.
