In Shackles

In shackles!
Pain and agony,
But, give ear to me when i speak! !
Oh you that have knowledge,
Listen to me:
The ear tests words and,
The mouth tastes food;
But, my feet are now in shackles.

Well It can be interpreted in many ways and my interpretation is that when the Messenger sent by God, The Almighty...they come and deliver the message to mankind, clear and plain and they are bounded by the truth. The shakle here represents the bond between them and Almighty and they request to humans to pay heed to what they speak and obey and follow the guidance. 10++++
Pain comes with stress and knowledge gives strength to handle. This is very interesting poem definitely. Wise sharing.10
