Set me Free

My heart’s in a prison cell
Can’t find a way to get out
Wandering through this dark room,
Four walls holding me in
Someone needs to get me out of this

Get me out of these prison chains,
And the shackles on my feet
I can’t take this anymore,
I’ve got to get free
One day I’ll escape,
The walls of my heart
Then start life anew
And get a fresh start
Set me free

Bitterness is holding me in,
The roots of anger growing fast
The weeds of hatred sprouting up,
Covering the surface
I can’t find any key,
To open up my cell
How long will I stay like this?
No one can tell

Get me out of these prison chains,
And the shackles on my feet
I can’t take this anymore,
I’ve got to get free
One day I’ll escape,
The walls of my heart
Then start life anew
And get a fresh start
Set me free

I try to use the things of this twisted world,
To open the chains on
My hands and feet
But no matter how hard
I try,
The chains remain,
Straddled around my heart
The invisible bindings are,
Wrapped around my soul
I need something
That money can’t buy
Something real
That will quench my thirst
So far, I’ve been blinded to
The material things
That sin can only possess
If the world can’t set me free?
Who can?

Get me out of these prison chains,
And the shackles on my feet
I can’t take this anymore,
I’ve got to get free
One day I’ll escape,
The walls of my heart
Then start life anew
And get a fresh start
Set me free

Suddenly
I feel tap on my shoulder
And the Father comes down and picks me up
He takes my soul
He breaks the chains
That were holding me down
Like a thousand pound weight
My chains are gone

My heart was in a prison cell,
Now I found a way to get out
No more wandering through this dark room,
Now my Savior set me free
Jesus Christ
My Savior
Got me out of this

He got me out of those prison chains,
And the shackles on my feet
No more does the world have,
A hold on me
I’m already free
Today I escaped the walls of my heart,
Starting life anew
Getting a fresh start
I’m free

I absolutely love it! I loved ur other poem called "My Music" too. This is just so fresh and what young ppl need to hear as opposed to some poem talking about a guy or a girl...how many poems can u do like that? But this was amazing! Keep it up!:)

This is going to sound rediculous, but I don't have the internet at home, so I have to use my mom's e-mail at her work, and so I can't really do anything with it. But if you want to start a forum so we can talk, you can do that. We can chat on there.Oh and thanks for Your positive comment:)
