Bhavani Polimetla

Innocent Prisoner

I am the innocent prisoner
Sitting on the death row

It’s my bad luck, I am in the seen
It’s my bad luck, no one on my side
It’s my bad luck, I was born on this earth
It’s my bad luck, my family is struggling
I am the innocent prisoner
Sitting on the death row

Half of the life spent in the world
Rest of the life wasted behind the bars
Why they should hold me too long to judge
My heart is telling, I am the innocent
No heart is having ears to listen my plea
God, help me to convince the deaf
I am the innocent prisoner
Sitting on the death row

You have time to go to film
You have time to wait in the traffic
You have time in day-to-day life
Can’t you spend few minutes?
To listen to my heart’s plea
Don’t shut the doors on my face
I am the innocent prisoner
Sitting on the death row

I didn’t prayed enough to come out
Hope God wants me to pray more
I don’t have time to pray enough
God, if you don’t have time to bring me out
At least come and pick me after my death
I can’t wait so long in my grave for you

Dear brothers and Dear Sisters
Don’t cry for me. As Jesus told
Cry for yourself and cry for your families
Every one of us needs to face it
Sooner or later we are all going to die
I don’t have fear to death
But my heart is crying for calling me a killer

Time is running
Life is ending
Going to wait in the heavens
To see you all once again

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
