Tangled in an alluring dance,
oblivious to this second chance.
Entrapped in this infinite noose,
knots wrapped so tight, can not come loose.
He tosses, turns, tries hard to sway,
so hard to move, caught like hurt prey.
His helpless heart stands still in place,
gives into loss, no will to chase.
But sacrifice is not his claim,
refuses to play worthless games.
Calms all his nerves, searches his mind,
a taste of hope his heart soon finds.
Opens both eyes then comes to see,
his captive soul was always free.
The ego side, afraid to live,
this realization made knots give.
Determined to accept life’s ride,
he spun his globe and let it guide.
This new journey glowed with bright light,
then filled him up with great insight.
Aware that he was well prepared,
cleared away fears, ensured he dared.
Excitement flowed deep in his veins,
shielding him from transparent chains.
