No.228: Do You Truly Want Them To?

 

Note to self.

You love your shackles,
don’t you?
I know you find them
comfortable.
I know you doubt the
consequences.
Ask God for help
after the fact
like it ain’t offensive.

But do us both a favor
and choose your prayers with caution.
Your coffin is catching up to you.
Surely, by now, you must know:

The chains will not break
until you want them to.
