Mary S. Nichols

Patterson, New Jersey, USA

I Am Free

The chains that bound are broken
No more the prison bars
That reached to smother and engulf me
With every passing day,
No more the sorrow or frustration
I have found a way.
I am free
And with my freedom comes
The dawning of a new day
With love, not bitterness, with hope
The strength to cope
I am free
No more the tears for things
That should have been
The barren years, the stunted growth
I see the world through different eyes
And say Welcome World
I am free
