This poem was written while I was in Prison. It describes my desire for the inmates around me to see they have a better choice in life.

 

CHOICES

 

MY HEART IS YEARNING FOR YOU LORD,

I HAVE A BURNING DEEP INSIDE;

JUST TO BE IN YOUR AWESOME PRESENCE,

IN THAT SECRET PLACE TO ABIDE.

 

THERE IS EVIL ALL AROUND ME,

TROUBLE ON EVERY HAND;

HOW THESE PEOPLE CAN LIVE LIKE THIS EVERY DAY,

I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND.

 

THEY’RE CURSING AND USING YOUR NAME IN VAIN,

BEING LOUD AND CRACKING JOKES;

LIVING LIFE LIKE IT HAS NO END,

YET DOING TIME BEHIND CRACK AND COKE.

 

OH LORD IF THEY COULD ONLY SEE,

THAT THEY HAVE A FRIEND IN YOU;

THAT YOU LOVE THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE,

DESPITE WHAT THEY SAY OR DO.

 

IF THEY ONLY KNEW YOU COULD HELP THEM,

START THEIR LIVES ALL OVER AGAIN;

BUT YOU CAN’T DO IT ON YOUR OWN,

THE CHOICE BELONGS TO THEM.

 

HELP THEM SEE THAT LIFE IS SHORT,

THEIR TIME IS RUNNING OUT;

YOU’LL SOON BE COMING BACK AGAIN,

TO TAKE US HOME NO DOUBT.
