How is it that these bonds are strong,
When barely do they constrain?
A wiser man could untangle them
Again, and again, and again.
Perhaps I haven’t learned enough
To find my own way out.
From these bonds that tie me down
And sabotage my route.
I know the answer’s out there,
Not far beyond my reach.
Perhaps if I dive deep enough
I will find a way to breach.
And finally trod a path that’s true
To get me on my way.
Dismantling these bonds that tie me down
In this, to God, I pray.
