Bounded

Samson chained upon a wall
With his strength gave it all
Tumbled Temple with his might
Forever gone was his sight

Fire giver left in chains

Raptors feast on its remains
Gift of wisdom with the light
Humans freed now delight

Planets, moons, orbs in space

Fixed, aligned held in place
Nature’s pull on them so tight
Against it so the orbits fight

Bounded I am to this embrace

Tied my heart with its full grace
Hope eternal will alight
Honor holds me to its bite
