Set You Free 1


In my mind
There you were
Locked up in a cage

The key remained hidden for so long
Because of the rage that still remained

Forever just a prison
In my very own mind
A prison that is invisible and so hard to find

The bars are made of the strongest material
So much stronger than iron

The floors are not made of cement
But they shall hold together for all time

A prisoner in my very own mind
I threw away the key
But what is the point of being a prisoner
If the only one this hinders is me

In my mind
There you were
Locked up in a cage

For I couldn’t think of forgiving you
My soul was filled with rage

Forever just a prisoner
In my very own mind
Your prison was invisible and so hard to find

The bars which enclosed you were mental
So strong to break for you and for me

The floors were practically endless
Like the hole you made in me

You were a prisoner in my very own mind
I threw away the key
But I finally must forgive you
I shall finally set you free

“When you don’t forgive someone you rob your soul of its freedom….Forever they will be a prisoner in your mind and this will only hinder you. Free them, and you will free yourself… Forgive freely and let things go…” – Monica Renata
