Fate and Forgiviness


The gavel fell, and my world disappeared,
I was locked in a nightmare about my worst fear.
How could this have happened? How can this be?
I AM INNOCENT, why am I not free?
I did nothing to her!!!! Yet she still lied.
Now all my my NFL dreams have died!
Look at me, I am here, uniformed and barred.
Learning how to forgive her, even though it's hard.
I found God here, inside this sinfilled place!
I still hold my head high, I am not disgraced.
Year after year, that busy world outside just carries on.
I have faith, for my hope, my potential, will never be gone.
That day finally came when her guilt made her confess to her crime.
I got a second chance at life, I will live it to the fullest for the rest of my time.

    this scenario sounds vaguely familiar to me. Who was this guy with NFL dreams? I enjoyed this. Congrats on your win.

    you know at current moment the name slips my mind, bt it was a national news headline here in the U.S.A. a fewmonths back. a girl accused a college football star of raping her just weeks before he was due to be scouted. after he spent years behind bars she finally decided to say she had lied. now he was able to go to NFL tryouts and he is now a football player for them. good ending to a horrible story. thanks for the congrats

    Hi Kathryn! This is a very unique writing. I like the perspective here utilizing opposing keywords: "Locked", "Innocent"; "God", "Sin-filled". Yet, ending with a glass half-full tone. Very, very well done!

    Thank you, that was based on a story I recently seen on the news, a guy was in college getting scouted, but a woman accused him of raping her, after years in prison, she finally told the truth. he was set free and offered tryouts in the NFL and he is now on a team. He said he forgave her, he had found God in prison. thanks for the visit, as always it was an honor.
