Court of “Law”
Give one man five years
and another a quarter-century
for committing the same crime…
the public just can’t see.
But, the men who are trapped
in a system of inconsistency
can’t help but feel rage-because
with their eyes, they see,
what no one seems to see.
There are rules for such things you know,
rules that supposedly are followed.
Yet nobody punished the violators of these rules,
while we, the victims,
are sent to the black hole of prison to be swallowed.
I made my mistake, GOD knows I did —
And for that I fully admit.
Now each day I better myself
and that night I’ll never forget.
But judges sentence men they know nothing about;
and it is assumed their decisions are right.
Some say LIFE, as if it’s not someone’s life,
and move on to the next, as day follows night.
These men will never be punished,
Even though they’ve obstructed on my soul,
with an incorrect judgment passed,
the effect of which, they will never know.
Their mistakes I will try to appeal,
file papers, one after another.
Will they see their mistakes? Probably not,
for in their eyes, I am not their brother.
Was my mistake that much worse than theirs?
If they move on can’t I recover?
For now I can only sit in my cell,
pray that GOD helps me through this hell,
as I file appeals,
