Awaiting Release

Sadje’s What Do You See #42Please tag your responses with #Whatdoyousee.  Does this picture inspire you to write something?

Yet, another mask

painted in brilliant colors

sparkling glitter and

neon brush stokes

catching the attention 

of all eyes passing by…

But the dispirited eyes

behind the mask

speak of truth hidden

the ache of the lost soul

desperate to be set free

from the prison of facade

Free Will

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #60 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

Behind the steel bars

is a tunnel that leads to

a prison of lost dreams,

deferred hope, abandoned faith

endless wandering through

mazes that can only be felt

for in this there is no sight…

until weariness meets humility

and the soul’s patina becomes 

new again unlocking the bars

setting free what was once

drowning in the sewage of despair.

Life can begin again at any time,

any moment of the day, by choice.
