To sit in chains

After Philippians 1:9-11

To sit in chains and see
the freedom, to smell
the prison pouring into me
and know the liberty confirmed,
to feel the dirt of the jail
on my skin and in my mouth,
and know the love showered
on me, to see the place
I occupy in the heart,
is to know these chains
represent the blessing given,
the heart filled,
the mind embraced,
the soul protected.
