Locked in a Cell
With no way out
Looking for exit doors
For my freedom
I remember how I used to grind
My teeth with happiness;
Now it is gone
I remember how I used to eat the burnt beans, my Mother Cook
But now there’s no imagination of it.
My Mother don’t you know me?
I was in your womb for nine months
My brother, blood and relation, don’t you know me
We grew up together and shared feelings,
You too have denounce me as a child of the family!
My best friend!
The reason for my misfortune,
Don’t you know me?
We encounter every activities of our lives together
Don’t you remember the bank robbery?
We did it together!
The promise to come and free me if the blame natures on my head
I dial your digits in vain, trying to reach you
But now gone you are to America
Starting a new life, family and identity
Hope has disappears to the wilderness
I look above the crack-ridden cell roof
Thinking of a way to get small like a mosquito and fly through it.
Or imagining the paradise Jesus spoke of
So that It can rescue me and save my wasted future
He being the only one to change my destiny
But all in vain?
Where will my help comes from?
Everyday is the same like yesterday
Pain and sorrow as it is; woken every morning with a wip, working long hours hard tasks
All day long, the alcer burns deep,
Of pain and a mask of feign happiness.
I remember the dedication of the rulers
We the masky skeleton acting as helpers
The ceremony began with a prayer
Something they cannot seal, is our hearts of receiving the grace of God
Since then, salvation became my only hope and reason of survival
Every morning he wakes me up with joy
Because I have a purpose to full fill
Now that I have gone this far with salvation, I am not turning back
As I wait for my freedom to start a new life of righteousness.
