New Song

Doors swung open, chains are broken
Blinking in the light of the day
Raise an offer of trembling palms
And trembling chin to heaven. 
Kiss of sunlight on geysered cheek
Swell of gratitude, an exhalation
He who began a good work in me
was faithful to complete it.
Don't let yourself forget, girl
How to walk with arms outstretched
With every toddling step you take
Towards Daddy's proud embrace. 
Resist the siren call of familiar cell,
Rhythm of remembered captivity.
Don't trade strolling in the daylight
For confinement's tale of safety. 
Woman with hands raised towards heaven.
