This work has reached the exceptional level
A man in his prison reflects on his life
"This Is Not Gods Will" by Earthspoet
Free is the word or free as a bird
I'm in prison, behind bars.
As a child did I ever think this would be me.
As a man physically restricted and confined
between these prison walls
as l watch from my prison cell widow
as countless birds fly by and passed
as if to "tease and remind me"
as they soar "higher" and
Into a blue and white sky and above.
This I Did not plan
Perhaps I should have
I mean...plan my life, and map things out.
On reflecting and thinking
it's easy to think this way now
but it's never to late
to start again
but one good thing I know
no one can ever imprison my mind or thoughts
So deep within my head space and mind I am free
I am free
and there that's where I will
start to plan all good things and soar higher in this my thoughts
and make things better for myself
and others, maybe even a nation
In spite of all my mistakes and
Bad choices, from out of the dark and into the light
From out of the cold and into the warmth
Better days are to come and thy will be done
as it was stated in the "LORD PRAYER"

This is not the end just the start of a new beginning
From here on in things can only get better and better
and I will be reborn STRONGER ! and Better, may be this is Gods will and plan "for me"
So that l can feel exactly the way that I do for I know now

This is the Lords Will
Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.Thy kingdom come.Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil

A Symbol of the Faith,
Giving Us Hope, love, and Peace
Within These Walls

Author Notes
Anyone can make a mistake.
And anyone of us can end up in prison, and this may be from something as defending yourself
So never look at that person In prison like you are that far removed
from "what happened to them"
for it also can "happen to you."
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
