WRONGFUL INCARCERATION WITHOUT LOSS OF DETERMINATION

I did'nt deserve to watch my mom break down over nerves
I did'nt deserve for nightly my dads sleep to be disturbed
I did'nt deserve for life to be the judge and jury's words
I did'nt deserve prison on this plate that I've been served

I never thought My kids would see me through this plated glass
I never thought my time would seep bye like a hourglass
I never thought I'd cry like I'd been hit with some teargas
I never thought I'd be the one the world would just bypass

I should have been forgiven but my innocense was shamed
I should have started running but I wasnt to be blamed
I should have saw it coming how could I be so defamed
I should have trusted no one but now I just sit here framed

I will not lose my sanity In the Lord I'll trust
I will not be a casualty to this I must adjust
I will not scorn humanity but for their air I lust
I will not let this tragedy give me a stone like crust.

    Your poem is deep, putting your trust in God, is the right move. You are strong, and determined.... always...PD

    Great determination here Sha'. It is such a dreadful thing when one is wrongfully accused and much more, incarcerated. This is the perfect forum to vent and to look for healing. I pray you will find just that and be at peaced at last. thanks for visiting and leaving an appreciated comment. One love my friend. Joy Wells

    I like this, but I'll be trying to escape! It's more inmates than guards. Good Luck in the contest!
