Reasons ~ A Poem

Updated on May 23, 2013

The heart has already made up its mind

But the choice is not the heart's to make

Something inside screams to be set free

From the chains that are holding so tightly

Can you not see

She is not your property

She is not some child you control

She has a mind, a heart, and a soul

Yet she has reasons things remain the same

And those reasons each have a name

      yes, reasons always have a name and each one makes it more difficult to break free of the world - or evil - we know...

      you used so few words to say oh so much, my friend!

      Well done!

      This poem speaks to me in a very personal way. I know who my "reasons" are and how much I love them. And how that love for them has been stronger than the chains I have had to wear.

      Very powerful poem.

      Best Always,

      Kim
