Breaking Bonds

By
Struggling to move
Trying to break the bonds
The more that I struggle
The tighter they hold on
The ties that made me feel safe
That made me feel at home
Are the ties I want to break
I want them to leave me alone
I try to force my way though
Manipulating my way out
But the bonds just tighten
And I’m left with doubt
Will I ever find a way
A way to break free
Or will the bonds tighten
And never release me
I give up and let the ties have their way
And only then do I notice
The bonds loosening a bit each day

Thank you. I agree that it could be better as well, like not using the word bonds and ties everytime but other words as well.

I agree with *peachy_keen*. It sounds very real. I think it could also be a little more better, but its still very good. People can understand it. Everyone feels that way sometimes. Very good.

I like this. I think it sounds REAL. It's a great start but I'm sure you could make it better. Originals are always great to keep and usualy have more meaning to the author personally, I understand, but adding higher level vocab can definitely enhance a poem's effects. Also, I have a feeling you could dig deeper and bring out more emotion with it.
