Behind Bars

I never knew how much I appreciated freedom

Until it was taken me
The crimes I've committed has brought me to a place that I rather not be

A day is nothing more then a day as I sit here rotting in this cell

Wishing someone would take me out of this world because this is worse then


As the years go by I soon realize that freedom is nothing more then a distant

memory of the past

Perhaps I'll be able to find the piece within myself I have been searching for

at last

As the end draws near and it gets closer to my etneral sleep

I ask the lord before I'm judged to look at the life that he's given me

A neighborhood field with drugs, death , and poverty

I wanted to do the right thing but was forced into a life of crime to support

my family

Now am I guilty or a victim of society

A tragedy or a menace

All I want is forgiveness

Before my final sentence

Sometimes we have to look at the whole picture before we cast judgement, but God will be the final judge. Deep drop.

freedom is a state of mind, they can lock you up, but no one can shackle your brain, your heart, or your soul, be free through knowledge, be free through love, be free through your beliefs and pass that knowledge on to free someone else, you are obviously highly intelligent, and artistic, don't let anyone take your natural abilities away from you!!! And remember, the only forgiveness, understanding or judgment that means anything is from God, forgive yourself, and then ask for his forgiveness.

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
