Chained - Poem by Donald Yates
In a box wrapped in chains
he shut his life long dreams
To be a man admired by all
the caption of the team.
As time passed on more chains
The box became his coffin
One day a beam of hope he found
and a link began to soften.
Grabbing hold with all his might
he struggled with that chain
Twisting, turning with the fight
he would not give up again.
And then the link was in his hand
it gave and he was free
In every man's life the link is there
this was meant to be.
If you are trying to break your chain
one way I know is faster
Examine the links that hold you down
until you find the master.
The master link in your life and mine
is seen by many every day
For in the words of the masters book
there lies the key, the hope, the way.
