Treasure Island

Sharifa Palmer


All because I never believed


A simple lie had been told
Soon the truth unfolds
She lied, tricked and deceived
So I believed my son had committed the evil deed
His future behind metal bars
His life would become so dreary
I silenced the witness so my son could roam free
As the sun rose, uniformed men littered my lawn
Sirens not sparing my eardrums
BOOM! ! went the door as they kicked it in
I barricaded my son from the men
They slowly stepped towards me and my son
I closed my eyes and cried
The reality hit me my son was going to jail for murder
I opened my eyes only to see me in cuffs
The officer said ' You're under arrest for Maria is dead'
My son's accusation was due to an identity mix-up
My son innocent and I guilty
If I had believed his assurance of innocence
I would'nt be digging for freedom with a spoon
I would be on the otherside of the bars
Looking at the stars

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
