"Shackled"
--------------------------
(by Sam/Cerca Trova)
I may
Yet I don't
I can
Yet I won't
Is it
Fear of change
That holds me back
Or faith in the future
That I lack
Is it
My haunting Doubts
Shadows of failures
I drag along
From the past
Is it
My own Inhibitions
The inner "No"
That halts me
From taking Decisions
Is it
The darkened road ahead
An unknown destination
A journey
Without an end
If only
I could know
I Want
To let go
I long to break free
Be able to flee
These towering walls
Of my imprisoning
Hesitations.
***
Thank you, Sam, for your contribution poem... we are so honored!!

Happy Easter toa you all & a special thanks to Sam for the poem quoted in this week's prompt.

These words speak loud & clearly to me:
"If only
I could know
I Want
To let go
I long to break free
Be able to flee
These towering walls
Of my imprisoning
Hesitations."

Thank you <3

The best way to conduct this is by joining a group museum tour where there will be an instructor to guide and give you bits of information that will help your child.
