I’ve been in for half my life
Family has written asking, Why?
No words will bring peace of mind
Wish I could ease your pain
If I say anything it will fall shy
Nothing can fix this
I know this . . .
I don’t expect a pardon
A parole or a bargain
I’m focused on me as a person
To be a better human, man, and student
The Universe is still teaching me lessons
Perhaps because I’m still asking questions
Dear Someone, Anyone . . .
I know people are awake
I know the world is not as fake
As it seems when I take a glance
They want to bring back
The Death Penalty in this part of the land
Is that Justice, Senator?
This is a Direct Message
In case they start killing us
They’ve packed the building
I guess we’re too visible
A stat of the system
