I wrote this a long time ago and it's about a captive woman who spent 9 years in prison on death row until she was freed in 2014; but after re-reading I find it could be any one of us...
In this place I am held captive;
This cell of depression;
This unloved, and uncared for world,
Of loneliness and despair.
Oh God, why have you abandoned me?
I see no hope, no way out of here.
Is this your will?
This meagre plate of food you send
To nourish my soul
Now all is dark,
My prayers go unanswered,
And who cares for this
This soul alone?
