Cell Fever - Poem by Linda Hepner
Under the air there is another air,
Over the stars there is a pool of stars,
Deep in the earth there is a ball of fire
Inside the water there’s a sea of seas;
Under my heart there is a hungry stare,
Over my eyes there are the prison bars,
Deep in my cell there is a judging liar,
Inside my heat there burns an arctic freeze.
God let me out, I cannot stand the ice,
God let me in, I cannot bear to burn,
God let me breathe, God stop playing dice,
God, let me go, God read me, stop and turn.
Now as I walk in solemn step to end
Life as I knew it, hour and day,
Let them in Your name take my breath to spend
Lawlessly letting others lie and play.
