I Am Free - Poem by Mary S. Nichols

The chains that bound are broken
No more the prison bars
That reached to smother and engulf me
With every passing day,
No more the sorrow or frustration
I have found a way.
I am free
And with my freedom comes
The dawning of a new day
With love, not bitterness, with hope
The strength to cope
I am free
No more the tears for things
That should have been
The barren years, the stunted growth
I see the world through different eyes
And say Welcome World
I am free
