Chains

Poem By Claude H Oliver II

Chains are designed for many uses
Chains on tires in snow help you go
Chains on hands and feet are hard to defeat
Chains on anchors hold ships in place
Chains on the mind shackle the spirit
Chains of hate incinerate the soul
But the chains of love are most unique
For when we are bound by love
We are free to give of self
We are free to care for each other
We are free to laugh and spread joy
We are free to be – and be our best
Love’s chains come without request
Though they have a pain of their own
But the freedom of life these chains bring
Are worth the groans and moans of carrying them

Paradox

When life gives us our first breath
Standing by is our own death
When we breathe our first sigh
We know not our destiny is to die

As a man thinks
So he is
His thoughts prescribe

Enlightenment

Are we moving to a higher plane
To better understand our name
The same we call our divinity
Creation aspiring to be creator

Poetry

Poetry is music
Rhythms and beats of our expression
Melodies of our emotions
The instrument of our thought emits this music
