to forgive

the chains around your heart
forged by grudges tearing you apart
the whimper of the voices in your head
softly singing in your ear
you utter the words
standing locked in complete fear
releasing all of your chains
every word a link broken, tears like rain
streaming down your face
unfounded freedom in forgiveness
worries left without a trace
