All kinds of prisons

There are all kinds of prisons
All sorts of cells
All types of torments
Various hells

The prison of marriage
When love long-since died
The cell of a room
Where you sit and hide

A body thatís broken
A bed that holds fast
A mind thatís in torment
A life that seems past

The chains of disappointment
The shackles of fear
The doubts and the hopelessness
The non-ceasing tears

In such cells as these
Jesus longs to reach
Bringing His light,
His love and His peace

Bringing you freedom
Release, broken chains
Restoring, renewing
Again and again

Thank you Anne for this piece. I relate to it - I've had a few different kinds of my own, too. It was great that you mentioned a few of the kinds of prisons/living hells that we might face in our lives. I enjoyed reading this poem and found it refreshing; a sense of getting it out-in-the-open feeling....... Thank goodness for Jesus and forgiveness, and being cleansed. It was nice to see that you live in the UK too!

When I hear the word 'prison' I think of the one everyone is familiar with which houses criminals. I think you've done an excellent job depicting the mental and physical elements which can bind us. Great poem! Have a great day, Herman

Dear Anne, Read this this morning and I so appreciated comparing the prisons/ contraints of relationships. If I may...say...(and maybe it is because of my postion in my spirituality at this present time), what would have helped me, would be to have you make the same poetic references to the Lamb of God, turning the phrases the same way you did with the prison/cell theme. Does this make sense? Bless, kim

This is a very good poem, telling us all about the different types of prisons that we get locked into. This is full of truths, and it was a pleasure to read it. Thanks for commenting on "and the dream goes on."

This is a good one. Spiritual and emotional prisons can be just as bad as a physical prison. Thanks for posting:-)

Your descriptions of 'all kinds of prisons' rebounds in my mind. I've been there, done that, when my son died from a drug overdose, and I attempted suicide.Depression is an engulfing sphere, like a bubble,separating one from reality. But God's Light has set me free! His peace transforms me into heavenly places only He and I share! Blessings, Bella

Thanking Him with you that His mercies are, indeed, new every morning - I am enjoying your verse too! Thanks, Anne
