A Map Of The World
~Ruth Kephart~

He locked me in irons
And threw out the key.
You broke chains that held me,
Setting me free.

He caged me with cruelty;
Left me to die.
You healed broken wings
And taught me to fly.

He fed me his lies
Till I withered, was doomed.
You nourished my soul
And watched as I bloomed.

He judged me unjustly.
You pardoned the crime.
He put me away.
You served out the time.

He reached out to strike me,
His temper unfurled.
He said I’d go nowhere;
You gave me a map of the world.
