FREED, by            
First Line: I have supped with fear and choked
Last Line: I have paid, and freed the pawn.
Subject(s): Fear; Freedom; Soul; Liberty

I have supped with Fear and choked
On the black bread of Despair;
I have made my bed with unholy Dread
And the child conceived was Care.
But I am a free born soul,
I will fasten my door with a bar:
I will pour me wine from a grape divine,
And light my room with a star.
I will smooth my sheets and wait,
I will lift my voice and call,
And the gloomy past shall no shadow cast
For I have done with it all.
I have feared to wake and weep,
But now I shall love the dawn:
Sun, shine on my head, I have requiem said,
I have paid, and freed the pawn.
