Sometimes life can deal us cards that we find hard to accept…
Those that know me also know that I am really going through the mill health-wise. The thing is though I really think we can find freedom amidst all that life throws our way.

My world is reduced to a prisoners view
From a glass caged window
Looking out while life goes on.
There are no bars or chains in this prison
Except those made from failing flesh.
But whilst flesh and blood fail
The world of the mind is set free
To soar past the confines of freshly concerns
Set free to roam
But do I dare to release this fragile thing
Much more delicate than the cage of flesh and blood
That confines it.
Dare I raise my hand and smash the glass cage
And in that act of violence set free my mind
Reflected in the shards of broken fun fair mirrors?
Sarah Courtney Dean: I am a poet and my poetry is part and parcel of my spiritual tradition. I am a Druid and a seer and also a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids. I live in the UK in the beautiful county of Dorset. My poetry is inspired by nature in all its forms especially by the progress of the seasons and how the Goddess is seen in them. I am single by choice and live with a ginger and white cat by the name of Rowan who as all cats are prone to rules the roost. You can find me on facebook here and on my page here.
