I’m Almost Free

I’m almost free.
I can feel the manakles loosening.
If I’m still, I can feel a slight wind stiring.
When I close my eyes, the light grows brighter and warms my eyelids.
My happy feet itch in preparation to run towards the river.
My face shines in strength and anticipation.
Oh, it’s a matter of just a little more time now.
I can feel it.
I’m almost free.
