The Rope That Binds Me
Author: Pamela O'Brien


The knots of this lifetime are becoming too frequent,
And I can no longer find ways to loosen their grip,
As I near adulthood I am beginning to see,
That this life is a noose attempting to strangle me.

So what if I rip at them, what happens then?
I am left with nothing but two broken ends,
And as I always do, I'll make amends,
And then try to tie myself up again.

Thanks Everett, I liked this one too. I think it is extremely metaphorical but still common enough for everyone to get the gist :o)
