Whats a prisoner to do? - poetry

 

What's a prisoner to do when fairness fails
and the childlike is escorted off to jail?

What's a prisoner to do once stigmatized,
caged and abandoned and ostracized?

What's a prisoner to do there's no one to trust;
the approach fails and the outcome unjust?

What's a prisoner to do when children decide
the punishment is defensible and justified?

What's a prisoner to do while confined in a cell;
the perpetrator's free and faring quite well?

What's a prisoner to do once his reputation is dead
and his life has been ruined as of what a big shot said?

What's a prisoner to do when he's not believed,
though he's forceful the truth, he's accepted wisdom to deceive?

What's a prisoner to do as he sits all alone,
no one seems to care; previous contacts all gone?

What's a prisoner to do session lost and idle
and most of one's opinion develop into suicidal?

What's a prisoner to do when freedom's taken away
and the will to live diminishes each day?

What's a prisoner to do when hedged in by strife;
with no break possible; no attempt for a new life?

What's a prisoner to do when he can no longer see
the beauty of the sky or the waves of the sea?

What's a prisoner to do when the sun he can't feel,
nor the breeze of bounce for the reason that his fate is sealed?

What's a prisoner to do when doomed to despair
but still praying to break the emotional chair?

Tell me, what's a prisoner to do?
