Prisoner

Prisoner
BY HEROLD OSMOND OWOSEB
I dare not say that I am innocent for I am not 
I have committed a crime
But my delinquency is contrary to felony
I have committed a crime of goodwill  

My transgression may not require the compensation of a custodial sentence 
But I deem it necessary to be jailed 
Furthermore, I implore thee to let me hang by the tree
For I find no a reason to walk any longer 

For too long I have carried the burden
Too long I have held on to this love
I have loved uncontrollably
My whole heart I have given unto thee

Though I am dubious of thy thoughts
I ponder on what to do
Locking the door is painful
But no longer can I wait, for a shooting star on a cloud-covered sky

                                                                                                     29 November 2011
