Pray For Inmates Going To Court - Poem by SQC Chevalier

May prayers are with the inmates today
In court at 10a.m. a decision will be made.
It will affect the rest of their life
Let us prayer it’s not one of strife.
Some were stuck in jail for they had no money to get out
they ended up pleading guilty because they had no clout.
Some had bad luck from the start
they had bad parents who froze their hearts.
Maybe they went into drugs to ease the pain
maybe their pain body took over so they needed to hurt again and again.
When will this chain of events ever end?
Look to other cultures that raise their young
they are treated like spiritual beings
when their life has just begun.
They grow up knowing who they are
they grow up being a shining star.
So treat each other with kindness today
it might be their last smile they see
before they are sent on their way.
