Speaking of Obligations....(15)

So Maybe Rapunzel Felt Nervous about Leaving the Tower. . .

On any given day a multitude of sins
arise to maneuver me into their home.
There I sit in hoyden splendor,
with jeweled shackles binding my heart
to their well-planned ways.

Where is the One who will free me
from the Prison of Self and win back my Heart?
And if my Heart were free,
how then would I find my way
through the dark world,  alone,
without my sins?

15th and almost the last in a series on the Long Obligatory Prayer

  1. In my mind, I always link her with Lady of Shalott. This is a really interesting piece...Rumi-esque, I think.
