Getting Through
Author: Capricorn


Trapped in my cage,I can't pursue
my dreams when life goes wrong.

Strapped in this mind,I can't construe
that hell would last so long.

Slapped in my face,my mind askew.
I cry my sombre song.

Wrapped in the warmth to help me renew
my strength and hope prolong.

Clapped by applause at getting through
to sing my victory song

We hear your song.


I understand what you are saying here and you sound so, strong, because you have to be. Yet, there are times when anchors seem to hold us in the deep and all we wish to do is surface, if just for a little while.

Tender, but strong, beautiful thoughts which as I say, I think, I understand how you must feel sometimes and I think of you often, waht a person you are.
