Handcuffs

Our thoughts can be the handcuffs
Emotions are the cage
Our bodies are the prison
Surrendering to age

Our minds betray the truth
Our eyes distort the light
Our hands clench in to fists
Ready for a fight

Like spirals we must spin
An endless loop of pain
Unless we’re willing to detach
From our need for gain

We seek to end the struggle
Not knowing what it is
Sleeping through the days
This is no way live

Our nature is to complicate
Make it harder to align
Not trying to appreciate
There are so many signs

Just be true and be you
Serve more and have less
Find fearless love and virtue
And forget all of the rest.
