These Slings & Arrows That Bind Us – Author Tony Haynes

These slings & arrows that bind us
Rupture our mythology
And offer no apology
Devoted are these things that narrow-mind us
I in my illusive state
Tend to differentiate
Intensity from sadness
Or a method from madness
Noting this day brings a sparrow…

…To fly where light outshined us
And free hearts
From these slings & arrows that bind us

Excerpt from the book “Throwing A Dart
Through The Heart Of Tradition”
