I sit here in bondage

Unaware of the prison I am in

I wasn’t always a slave

but the cost of my freedom is too much to bear

I desperately want out

but I’m in chains

I’m unable to escape

What’s scarier is that I hold the key to my prison cell

and yet, I cannot escape.

When will this vicious cycle end?

The freedom I long for is within reach,

but I can’t let go of my chains.

How can I love what I despise?

How can I despise what I love?

Am I really at a crossroads?

How can I be in turmoil, unsure what to do?

How can some love being captured?

Am I a prisoner of my own self?

Is there a real escape?

Or is this the life for me?

Always in bondage, but

thinking I am free.

When will it end?

When will I learn enough is enough?

Is the time now to break my chains?

Do I actually have the freedom to escape?

Lord, help me break the bondage and run to you!
