Poems For Someone in Prison

I was a prisoner in the Michigan prison system. This is some poetry from prison I wrote while incarcerated. This prison poem is about being sentence for a crime you never committed. 

I am not bitter about going to prison because I became to know the Lord while in prison. While at my darkest hour when I had no reason to continue living, the lord visited me and give me hope and a vision while in a lonely jail cell.

However, I am very distraught about the injustice of the judicial  system. But the Lord told me that "if they can convict Me (an innocent man) than surely they will do it to you"

                                              




                                     
                                                    Sentence to Die

When I first broke the law, I had never did any time,
I was ignorant about the judicial system,
when they convicted me of the crime.
I had no money to pay an attorney to advocate my case,
so I testified to the court asking for mercy and grace.
I fooled myself by thinking everything will be fine,
“just plead guilty” was the only thing came to mind.
I’m sorry your honor about this crime”,
but the judge had no mercy, 
and sentenced me with a huge fine.
But thousands of innocent people are also
unjustly judged and tried,
some suffer greatly where the law is unjustly applied.
I prayed hard about these things, I know God heard,
because He shared with me a very special word…

“Do thou not remember when I was prosecuted,
judged, and tried?
They charged Me with speaking blasphemy,
but everyone knows they lied.
I did not need an attorney because
the truth speaks for itself,
but they said I had no evidence to support my story
and sentenced me to death. I told the truth,
but the prosecutors turned it into a lie,
I had many witnesses but they still sentenced Me to die.
Wherefore, thou shall know the truth about the laws of man,
thou shall be prosecuted and convicted
without ever taking the stand.
But I shall deliver the captives so the world can see,
that I can deliver those whose trusts and believes in Me.”

Isaiah 37:20, John 7:51, John 8:15. I Tim 1:8-10

                          
I am personally very sorry 
if your loved one is in prison. I was once in prison
and know personally how difficult it is.
