Take Heart

Some stories better left untold

Others build us prison walls

but when uttered they dissolve

unchained altar call

Like a caged bird flapping

fighting endlessly

Decides to sing its heart song

then gentle hands set free.


Poem inspired by:

Prison Fellowship of Australia – Art from Inside Project
