The Pain of Chains

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.
