Bound

I have always wondered
Why some people
Have a more radical
Conversion than others who
Come to Christ
I think I get part of it now
Jesus has been called
The Breaker if Chains
We are all chained
By sin’s iron grip,
The one broken
By God’s love and forgiveness
But how much stronger
Is this image
When it is more than a metaphor?
No wonder those who
Have been bound
By actual, physical chains
Rejoice so much louder
Than those whose wrists
Have never been bound by steel
