what holds you here
and scared of your own dreams?
where are your lashings?
you cry victim hood
you’re burning
but what keeps you standing?
what keeps you planted
tall against distant screams
how long have you been here? lurking?
what have you been thinking?
what will it take to get you running?
and to keep running,
never looking back
at the snaking chain
itching to snap
who holds you here?
