The Mountain’s Peak

Break these heavy chains from off my wrists;
shatter these restraints and burst my cysts.
You’ve tied me down and pushed me ’round,
to act like a Queen who’s been self-crowned.
Days have passed living beneath your authority,
democratically contributing to us as a minority.
Just a present-being begging for equality,
but with no signs of personal rights nor apology.
Just a distorted image of myself abound,
towards a freedom that may prove profound.
~
Every little twist and turn in the road lingers,
as I escape the grip you hold between two fingers,
and I escape the cold that pierces like wooden splinters,
frostier than the deepest chill on the coolest Winters.
A heart that bleeds from the contemplation
on this once deceptive love, now not but an aberration.
~
Cruel cruel world,
come unfurled,

as I long for the sweet song of those fairy tales.
Heed the scratches from those nails
and instead, blow some wind beneath my sails.
~
Raised to believe that happy endings may be destiny,
yet it feels as if the slick hand of fate takes the best of me
to be drawn through the torrents of rain
which downpour in thick disappointment and pain.
~
Forgive me not- for all I’ve been,
comfort me not- for all I’ve seen,
remorse for me not- for my broken past,
this life is fleeting and retreating fast.
~
Today I’m climbing to a mountain’s peak,
shrouded in clouds my path seems bleak,
but I seek to prove that I’m not so weak,
and when I arrive at the top of my own two feet
I shall prove myself proud without an air of conceit.

    The entire poem is outstanding but this last part is awesome……made me want to stand up and cheer!
