The Prisoner The Society


The prisoner, the one who wronged
The one who pays
The one who regrets
And is willing to do his best

The society, the one who is offended
The one who condemns
The one who forever chastise
And will never forget

Those two are interrelated, but which is worst
The prisoner is willing to try again
The society not willing to let him
I wonder which is it who really is earnest in serving the king.

In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
