This Time He Will Be Free

This Time He Will Be Free

Such pain surrounds the eyes I see

So deep and running to his core;

His soul is pure and would be free

But conscience knocks upon the door

He chases shadows now;

Resolve is good but was before

An incident occurred most vile;

His drink reduced him to the floor

But still he clutched to his denial

His demons wrest within;

But starts again his maintenance

No booze to clutter memory;

Gives he himself more than a chance

To save from Hell his sanity

His offspring scream to him;

Their memory lends strength to bone

And banish he his demons hence;

His previous acts he won't condone

No time to idle on the fence

This time he will be free...

And we all pray  that this time, he makes it.  One can live in the past while living the present, but most things in the past should remain there.  Remembered, yes.  But to live your life now trying to make up for things done in the past, is not a way to live.  Repent to those hurt and then give it up.  Whether or not they forgive is their burden to carry.  
Sounds much like the man I knew as "Daddy"  even though he was a step-dad.

Sounds like a good cleansing poem to me.

What a powerfully written piece on a subject many have experienced first hand! Thank you for sharing.

This time he is free -- and I have no doubt he will remain that way.  I still say: submit these poems to a magazine or something.  But do you listen to me?  No.  Love, David

Very intense, well written piece... We are most of the times our own worst enemy
