Death Row

One afternoon in the chamber of death A young man loses his life Death took him with a smile No longer feel pain He truly forgives them all Whose eyes were so blind And covey him to his tomb He knew he finally free In hands of justice By death of an innocent Decayed truth unveiled ~ Kimo, Tanka, Senryu Forms

I have seen the injustice of innocents being found guilty. The pain of being incarcerated for something you are innocent of must be tremendous.... Great entry deserves the win..... Jake

How often we see injustice being met out to the innocent at heart.But in most cases the truth is never unveiled,which is quite a sad reality.Good stuff from you Shirley.xoxo
