Why write

To release from my soul your injustice
refusing to seal such distain pain within;
allows the depth of inner grace to entice,
remembering that separation lays so thin.

Though you imprisoned my life’s labor,
my thoughts, words and soul flow free;
beguiled not darkened by your whore
that bred a chasm all the way to the sea.

Such deeds pollute the soil of your seed
screaming throughout morality of the land;
still, beauty and grace flows free indeed
darkness, injustice. will burn in your hand.

Depth of your soul empty like charred coal,
with sorrow I bow, streaming towards light;
mercy befall your soul, in spite of your goal,
darkness dispensed will caress eternal flight.
