Hands Full of Fire

Chained and tied
Object of contempt
Slave and chattel.

You do not know
Your own strength, but
Nor do they.

Wipe the tears away
Wipe the pain away
The day is new.

Break free the chains
Let them fall from
Your human wrists

And run wild through
The black stone streets
With hands full of fire.

The purpose of this moderation is to eliminate spam, of which this blog attracts an inordinate amount. Spammers, be warned: it takes me less time to delete your garbage than it takes for you to post it.
