Paradise Lost

ďThe mind is its own place,  
and in itself can make a heaven of hell,  
a hell of heaven.Ē Ė John Milton, Paradise Lost

 
No prison is darker
as that of oneís mind
when jailer's thoughts
become torturous binds.
 
No captivity exceeds
our own mental belief
convincing ourselves
of thoughts that we think.
 
When indeed they will pass
if we choose to release
expectation and doubt
for patience and faith.
 
Greater is the knowledge
regardless of condition
that gratitude and love
hold the keys to freedom.
