A Prisoner's Tears... - Poem by Ravi Sathasivam
My tears stream down from my soul
When I become like a bird in the cage
Now, this steel cage is my place to live
Entombed within four walls of the prison
this is the man made hell for criminals
Now, I regret what I have done with my life
Yes, I did wrong and my God punished me
Life in prison can not be explained
Everything to do with sinister punishment and retribution.
No one should not come here.
So stay out there without commit any type of crime
Now, I am far from my home town
and no one here or there to listen my story either
When I think about my family, my heart is breaking into two
I made my wife and children to suffer in their life
Who will feed my family and take care of them
I should have thought of all before I came here
So, has my peers and a judge and myself
everyday sitting here wasting my life away.
