Restless thoughts…

I want to share my whole heart with you today

Give you a glimpse into the inner workings of my mind

My soul begs to be set free

And yet it’s been chained deep within a cavern of forgotten dreams

I’ve been trying to escape my bindings

Hopeful that I may eventually stand firmly on my feet once more

And yet my body doesn’t respond to my daily pleas for freedom

Instead it continually insists on dragging me down

Leaving me to fight for the last bit of air available

I’m left just out of reach of the abundant life which swirls around me

Taunting me from every angle and leaving me restless

I’m beginning to wonder if anything will ever again settle into place

Just wish wholeness could be mine once again

  10. Maybe I don’t fully understand the meaning behind words but these ones- “I’m left just out of reach of the abundant life which swirls around me
    Taunting me from every angle and leaving me restless” – speak to me
