I wanted to blame you
For those silver chains that resided around my feet,
Ensuring I never felt the warmth of sun
And making me feel incomplete.
I wanted to watch those chains
Bind you like a python about to feast;
So that way you too would know the pain of chains –
Only then would I feel complete.
But you were never weighted by the chains I had,
Because I placed them there myself.
The only way to my liberation
Was to forgive you for yourself.
