The Prison

Artist for photo Z ward, Adelaida

All doors open

the day has come

to release all from the prison

the sentences done

With crimson eyes

having paid a heavy price

walking out the doors

new fate is roll of the dice

In an attempt

to replenish the soul

some prayed to God

a practice of old

Rain falling

some disappeared into the clouds

weak and beaten

wailing loud

Others walked passed the rain

into the sun

finding new life with hope

starting to run

The prison is empty

all released from the chains

now a harsh reminder

of a lifetime of pain
