'COMMITTING SUICIDE ON THE INSIDE'
What if a light worker committed suicide in confined walls
wouldn’t that had been a depressing thing for us all?
A light worker can bring light and change from the outside
a light worker can’t do it when stuck and ostracized.
Yes, thank the bond company for letting me out on bond
thank money that I had for we would be worse off.
Does the system start with sheriff who can just willingly so
put an innocent behind bars while the deceitful one is let go.
This is happened to many times
where innocent people who have not committed a crime.
Are put in to the system that says fight after your out
this is not justice I say with a shout.
So prayer now for things to change
we have to change this planetary game—
Of punishment before investigation
of someone who could have been framed.
Or the one who shot to defend his life from
a person who is totally insane.
