The bleeding, the healing keeps one going. A very touchy poem.

Even as I'm wet with tears and my heart bleeds Even as I break free from the cage that imprisoned me And breathe flames of protest and fury in poeted words And I have regrouped and think I'm healed The breaking will come again By and by. (Never mind. My take.) It's imagery and emotion packed and beautiful. ??????
