Wrongful Imprisonment

Here I live in darkness
Dreadful fright and fear
Kept from all my fam'ly
And friends that once were near

Why am I imprisoned
What has been my wrong?
Why this dreadful sorrow
Instead of happy song?

Naught has been my trespass
Innocent am I
Robbed of all life's goodness
Condemned in jail to die

    If i ever get wrongfully imprisoned after crying all tears out ..i would probably write my first book..:).Thinking of people in prison..rightfully or wrongly accused..must be hard for them indeed.Many times they re not giving second chances from society..Its sad..but your poem is great.Re haiku short form.if you.need help ask.butt deborah guzzi and charles henderson and Ruben O knows better
