Passover Poem

Before the joy
You have to fight
To be free
Pleading over and over
To your capture
Until you realize
He will never change
You will always be here
Promoting their purpose
Tired and afraid to look in the mirror
The fatigue you feel
Yields not one moment
Of you life, redeemed.
Slavery hurts
But freedom rearranges you
A thousand times
Until you scream
Prison is easy
You get fed every day
you have a roof
You’re miserable
But you’re breathing
Freedom is breaking through
You don’t want anything to break
Ribs break in CPR
When you are drowning
And need resuscitation
It’s ok to break a bone or two
Freedom hurts
But captivity
Eventually becomes
