All kinds of Prisons
by Anne Linington  
7/07/2007 / Poetry

There are all kinds of prisons
All sorts of cells
All types of torments
Various hells

The prison of marriage
When love long-since died
The cell of a room
Where you sit and hide

A body that's broken
A bed that holds fast
A mind that's in torment
A life that seems past

The chains of disappointment
The shackles of fear
The doubts and the hopelessness
The non-ceasing tears

In such cells as these
Jesus longs to reach
Bringing His light,
His love and His peace

Bringing you freedom
Release, broken chains
Restoring, renewing
Again and again

I live in the UK, and attend an evangelical Church of England, where I am training as a Reader, (lay preacher). I support the work of a Christian Healing Centre, and enjoy writing, particularly poetry.
