"No I am Not Dying"
I saw a television special about prisoners serving life terms
in penitentiaries till they die
they were given Hospice with the assistance of other volunteer prisoners
it was a raw experience to view.....


Hospice

Wipe away my last
tear
Cleanse my face
Wash my body clean
Prepare me, anoint me
With natures perfume
remove the clothes
That covers my body
Prepare me to exit
As I arrived
Naked.

Say a prayer for a soul
Bury me
Cover me with ashes
I’ll soon turn into.

Say a prayer for a soul

I think all of us, including prisoners, will surely need many prayers one day.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/31/2011
Yea, although I feel some prisoners deserve no mercy I think there are many who just took the wrong route in life and to die alone...sad.
