"Strings That Bind"

Reanimate the  marionette, cut loose the strings that bind and would direct without consent, or freedom we can't find. The wisdom of uncertainty leads through all fear to Light, and progress is the cherished goal for those who win the fight. All knowledge gained but compliments experiences first-hand, becoming power, when applied with wisdom, in one's stand. To dance, when worked upon with force, on strings which others pull, negates the choices thereby made and makes us play the fool. The strings that bind - ignorance and fear - make us sad marionettes who dance and play upon life's stage, and fill us with regrets.
