I sit enclosed.
Hidden behind these bars of lies.
Held captive by chains of my own making.
Bound by deceit,
Imprisoned by expectations
That I am too afraid to meet.
Until the Voice of Truth rings out
Stirring me from slumber…
Put on your strength.
Shake yourself from the dust, arise.
Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck!”
And I realize this truth calling to me
Is the Voice of Freedom.
For the first time, I notice
The keys to this cage are held within my grasp.
Freedom has been mine all along,
Placed there by nail-scarred hands
Of redeeming love.
I rise from this prison,
Insert the keys of mercy,
Swing forth these bars,
And FLY into the destiny created for me.
