Fornication to Freedom

As I walked into the court room Whispers shoving past my ears Sharp glances cut me like razor blades Negative energy so thick in the air it suffocates me Still they question – What is she smiling about? Hate was charging me with attempted murder Greed was first on the list of witnesses against me Lust and Envy were being held in contempt Prosecutor Strife showed up wearing a black suit and a lie Fornication drew many pictures Sin took a plea bargain, and testified as the prosecutions star witness Assistant Prosecutor Regret, worked hard to compile a jury of my fears Adultery yelled, “Hear ye, Hear ye, everyone rise, the Honorable Judge Grace presiding.” Doubt wouldn’t stop staring at me Vanity was the picture shooting court reporter Salvation was my court appointed attorney Forgiven was the only witness for my defense Victory over the enemy was my attorneys closing statement Free was the verdict that Judge Grace gave me

This is so carefully scripted and tells a powerful story. And I tho't this would be a smutty poem....WRONG! Real literature it is. Best to you and your gifts. Gwendolen
