To Walk Among Thorns

One must be honest

And not care what the world would say

We are called as such

To walk among thorns

And not to turn back


If I could just let go

Could I move people the way I am moved?

Or am I without expression?

What are these bars that hold me back

The veil that shrouds my understanding

Let me go

Let me go


If I could would I?

To walk where thorns grow

Or do I dance to a recorded tune

Fear has blinded me

And here I am

Here I am


Pour me out

Empty me

For nothing else matters

But You

Some stay with me forever like Find me in the River by Delirious. Hurt by Johnny Cash, which inspired my poem, To Walk Among Thorns. […]
