He Set Free My Soul

I am finally free from my guilded cage,
to suffer in silence no longer.
Even though much time has passed,
my mind could stand no stronger.

Though in captivity kept,
my knowledge grows.
Of what I am...
don't care who knows.

My soul is free,
for only one could set.
It was His guidance,
I dare not forget.

Now back with this world,
in a pace so fast.
Lord please don't let me fall,
back to my horrid past.

      Knowing that I am not in this life alone definitely is a high of its own.

      The inspirational verses that God still uses to heal my heart is Psalm 34:17-19.

      17 "The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;

      he delivers them from all their troubles.

      18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted

      and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

      19 The righteous person may have many troubles,

      but the LORD delivers him from them all."

      WOW!!! WHAT A PROMISE!!!!!!

      I surely see your point, but at the time I wrote the poem. . . it was meant to be vague. Its one of those "I know what I'm talking about" pieces. You see, at the time I wrote this, I was struggeling to accept my diagnosis of a personality disorder. While in a depression, I turned to God for guidence, and was led back to the real world... only by His strength. When I decided to write this poem, I didn't want to hide the fact that something was wrong, because I wanted God to get all the glory, but at the same time... I still hesitate to let others into the depths of my life. I have been writing for 12 years now, and have only started sharing my work for less than a year. I never wanted to let anyone in to see the real me inside. Its a scary thing... but I'm beginning to be more open. :-)

      Michelle,

      There is a sense of both strong rhythm and rhyme in this poem. Usually I see rhymes that are forced and very little attention paid to rhythm, so that's great. I also sense moments of great meaning running beneath the words with lines like "Though in my captivity kept/ my knowledge grows" and "It was His guidance/I dare not forget."

      Unfortunately, I can't seem to really grab the meaning clearly, even after several reads. Many of the stanzas feel like they start with a solid idea, then fast-forward to the conclusion, but I miss all the meat in the middle. Perhaps the from of the poem is too brief to capture the depth of the ideas you're looking to present?

      I think the poem might work better for me if it were set free of the need for strict form. Careful attention to rhyme and rhythm would still be key, but I think a greater depth of concept could be achieved.

      A good start, in any case.

      Thanks for sharing!
