Life Sentence

Life Sentence

A Poem by Foxx Falcon
"

The tale of a man convicted of a murder he committed. He has no claims of innocence.

"


 

There are no more pleas to be made


No more fame to be won


Alone in his cell he waits



He is guilty


 But he feels no guilt


And fears not all that will come



In his mind beyond these stone walls


He finds justification


For all he has done



Upon his head is etched a mark of his faith


Faith in an idol who would see blood spilled


 The blood of the dissimilar,


Of the less than



Is there so lonely a man


As he who sits alone with his ideals?


A man who has ended the life of a brother,


And with it his own?



When come the end of his days


No church bells will ring


No choirs will sing


Yet in his heart

There is a volatile peace



Beyond man’s laws


Says he


 With veins full of poison


He alone will know glory



Is there so lonely a man as


One left alone in his delusion?
