His thoughts dithering, “What have I done?”
He is charged with a murder crime,
punishment for him is the mere passing of time.
Now there’s nothing to do but wait
Life behind an iron gate
His enemy now time as thoughts do haunt
While around him other inmates taunt
Young man in cell one, “What did you do?”
I know you failed to think things through.
Your baby daughter not even two
Now will grow up hardly knowing you.
You used a gun and not a knife
But all the same you took a life.
What about his future wife
You know quite well her pain and strife.
Stripped are all your false pretenses
Forced to face dire consequences
Your deeds resulting in these recompenses
Of a life behind heavy metal fences.
You need not waste another day
For Christ prepared a better way
Get down on your knees and pray
Even though you’ve gone astray
God still loves you anyway
Only He can take your sins away.
Seek Him without hesitation,
Receive His gift of sweet salvation
Welcome His peaceful inhabitation
God is the true justification.
