The moon light casting shadows of the unforgettable past,
The twinkling stars reminiscing of the memories they cast.
Chained in shackles, lifeless and silently still,
Imprisoned and motionless no more hurt left to feel.
Locked in a fearful plight confined to this chair of steel
Cold and shining, the feet replaced by the wheel.
Yearning to be free like the swallows in the sky,
Soaring high through the skies as they mightily fly.
No more  hurt  or tears, all that is left is pain,
To suffer life like a prisoner shackled with a ball and chain.

  1. Ouch!!
    nicely written but 😦

  2. Its very touching. As far as I understood it, its a song of a person, who is trapped with his wheelchair after meeting with an accident…is it?

  3. @ sorcerer thanks.
    @ Nethra – yes you are absolutely right.I was trying to capture the hurt and anguish of the person without making it obvious that they were in a wheel chair.I wanted the reader to work that out for them selves.
