‘They Hold On’ (a Poem)

They are an eye
Glimpsed through twitching curtains
Grasping for a freedom
They have never found.

They are words you may remember
As a force that held you back:
That called you limited
And said, ‘no further can you go
Than the wall of your own fears.’

Now your wings unfurl
Yet they hold on
For anxiety beats them back
From the path of greater truth
Greater healing
Greater hope:

A path that awaits them
If they could only see
Under the rigid weight of their own rules
They fail to fly.
