Here stands a boy shackled and bound, fleeting was the moment or day he was ever to be found. Regardless of his strength or his untold might, he couldn't muster up another ounce of good fight. Now realizing he was frail and old, leaving behind him memories forever hunting and untold. He looked to his future with fiddle de dum and fiddel dee, knowing that soon he would forever be free. Then so young so torn and scared, placed in a land to venture no one dared. Looking out from his land on the disappointing horizon, he saw a future one so dreadfully frightening. so young and unloved filled totally with fear, wondering if anywhere anyone cared to shed a tear. Consumed with hate, Desperate to escape, he pondered his fate, with endless debate. Every winding path he ever could choose, was one from which he could only ever loose. with untold pain just over the horizon, a decision was made one most compromising. he would live just a little all shackled and bound, till the world he was in was swallowed deep under ground. now fearless he stood to seal his fate, he could no longer fight or cared to debate. time stood still as if frozen to the spot, invisiging the place his corps would soon rot. Engulfed in a moment of no regret, he wondered just who who would fret. his wife his children his family or those, who are always muscling in their nose. IS THERE EVEN A KEY? WOULD HE EVER BE FREE? HAS ALL THIS BEEN DONE DELIBERATELY? What of my family? Could I ever be happy? Who are we? Is there a god and where is he? Is this what me life must be? All this he thought from a far off place, where his heart was battling at a very steady pace. Free for a moment to review the things unsaid, 'I love you' one said when dyeing on a bed. 'Remember me as I was' could not be spoken, for all the memories would soon be broken. Instead just standing and staring in to the obis, unfolding a life surely no one would miss. He thought of the boy shackled and bound meeting his maker deep underground. With a smile full of fiddle de dum and a tear of fiddel de dee He opened his eyes and took one last look around forever to be free never again shackled and bound.
