The Chain That Binds Us
What is the chain
That binds us together,
The links invisible
That intertwine our simple lives
Into complex webs
Of experiences that are, were,
And are yet to have been?
Why do instinct and intuition merge
When we interact with other people,
The friends and strange faces
Familiar as the stars of the sky
That form the solar systems in our hearts?
Are we engraved in each other’s souls
As soul mates and soul ties
That are omnipresent and everlasting,
Who make us individuals whole?
We are all in relationships with each other
In one way or another.
Genesis and genetics are the beginning,
The family of God and mankind
As birds of the same feather
Flocking in synchronicity with All-Creation forever?
Love is the chain that binds us,
With fervor and happiness and joy a must.
It is the introduction that explodes on stage,
The firestarter that blazes bright after the denouement
In a climactic display that brings life to new heights,
Pushing away the depths in favor of the lights
That bring to the surface the beauty hidden
By our misconceptions of ourselves.
Who are we to label the Chain of Love as shackles?
Is it really servitude if the service is beneficial and voluntary?
Nay, that Chain is the only thing that is both True and fundamental;
Never false or forced or judgmental.
It is honest and sincere and unwavering;
It never fails or quits.
We can never have enough of it.
Let the Chain of Love bind every nation;
Link us to each other by its rings
Of mutual respect and admiration.
May it leave us open to renewal on every level.
For Love is the only force that breaks our bondage
To the falsehoods in our way;
It is the Light of the World that reigns in peace
As the gentle yoke of responsibility that sets us free!
