A Prisoner Cries


By all means i never wanted to live with humans,
my humanity was a fund not offered to women,
that man were my greatest enemies,
who am I whth such weaknesses?
should I have done a bit better,
the life beyond would have been less bitter,

Now in this cage i sink,
in that i might never rise,
I Sleep,
in that i might never shine,
let it rain with tears,
let it storm with fear,
let it pain with much regret,
I make a confession,
with that i wish to plough an apology,
to all who were victimise by my criminal excellence

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
