To Be A Prisoner Of Conscience - Poem by Tony Adah

To be a prisoner of conscience
Is to stay behind bars
And enjoy freedom in the house
Of your mind;
Even the wardens become more
Ordinary prisoners than the man behind bars
To be a prisoner of conscience
Is to see the limelight
And shine in the effulgence of fame
You shine much more than your jailors
And the more time keeps you in
Within the bars, the more sage they of you
Infact your tendency is to well up
And better up like wine.
Having been baked within the bars
You look beyond man
To the force that sets your mind free
But still incarcerate your body.
You are home; free in body and soul
And the world knows from from the experience
Of men and women who have been
In the clouds and now
The sun shine and summer is home.
