~~Prison Doors~~

Post by Shirley Shaw » Tue Mar 17, 2015 3:11 pm

Once you've entered into the doors
there's no escaping anymore !
No more bright Sunlight,
like I used to Love, either
as I viewed the skies.
Night falls so silently
and passes by so slowly.
I can only look up !
I start to Pray', to God', above,
to please,"Set me Free' !
Let me out of this Place
as I've sit here night and day,
just passing the time away !
I know I've made my Mistakes,
and for those I must now pay.
Please God', just take me away,
please lend me some of your,"Mercy and Grace'.
I just sit here drawing pictures
of lost and lonely faces,
feels like a fixture on the wall !
Somewhere along the way, I took a fall,
took the wrong path, to where I wanted to go.
I feel so all alone and cold.
These ,'prison doors',are all so Old !
How did I ever get in here.
I guess I lived my Life, in fear.
Now as I sit here, I've shed so many tears,
just to see the outside, once again.
I would turn everything all around,
instead of just waiting here, for the days to end !
Hidden deep inside
from the rest of the World,
and now I feel I'm going Insane !
If I scream out Loud,
will it make everything alright.
Dear God', please don't let me slide.
I'm stuck inside this crowd of vermin.
I could probably write a ,"Sermon,
about my wasted Life !
If I ever get a chance,
free,from these,' prison halls,
I promise you,'Dear Lord', I will stand tall !
I will,'walk the walk, and talk the talk !
I never want to feel this agony and pain, ever again,
that I have been placed in !
Some days, I feel so disgraced,
don't even feel like a part, of the human-race !
Is this all just a Dream,
or a nightmare, without a single theme !
Dear Lord',I want my Life back,
the right one, that I used to have !
Please give me a second chance,
so outside in the rain,once again, I can happily dance !
If I could only, be so lucky,
the only doors that I would ever want to see,
are the ones made so,'Pure and Heavenly' !
I promise I will do right by You, forever, and Faithfully',
cause never again,'these prison doors', inside,
do I want to be !
I could never tell you what it's like,
just being out of touch', with my Life !
A Lost, broken down, lonely Soul,
I just want to go back Home !
I had sunken down so low,
as I indeed, dug my own Hole !
The things I did wrong, I should have known better,
and now, I'm grateful, for even a Letter,'Dear Lord';
and just knowing that my Family
will always be standing here beside me !
My Life',is no longer mine, behind these,"Prison Doors' !
Heavenly Father', I promise I will go here, no more !
I have been Afflicted, Addicted, and Convicted,
for all of my past Sins !
I can only Pray', Dear Lord',
that me, You will forgive !
I will forever do right by you,
cause I almost, lost my Mind
sitting alone and behind, these,'prison doors', so confined !
I guess for awhile, I was just Blind,
to see the Light', 'Your Light'.
From now on, Dear Lord',
you will be my precious guide.
I will do my very best, with your help,
to win back some of my pride, and confidence.
Please give me some much needed rest !
So, for you, from now on, whatever the test,
I will live my Life, for only You !
Thank-you,(Eternally) Dear Jesus',
for setting me Free !
Heaven', or Hell', we make our own choices,
of where we would like to be !
Best to listen to Gods, Voice always !
I learned my lesson, the hard way, very well !

I WAS PICTURING MYSELF INSIDE THE,'PRISON DOORS',
ALL OF A SUDDEN, IT WAS AS IF I WAS ACTUALLY THERE.
GOD', MUST HAVE WANTED ME TO SEE AND FEEL, WHAT REALLY DOES GO ON-
BEHIND THESE,'PRISON DOORS'..I HAVE BEEN ,BLESSED', AND FORTUNATE,
THAT I HAVE NEVER HAD TO BE IN A PLACE LIKE THIS AT ALL;
BUT FELT AS IF, I WAS ACTUALLY INSIDE THERE.
SADLY, I HAVE KNOWN A FEW THAT HAVE BEEN HERE, AND PLEASE REMEMBER',
JUST AS GOD', WOULD WANT US TO DO---AFTER ALL, WE ARE ALL HIS CHILDREN',
PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO PRAY', FOR THEM TOO';
AS HE LOVES US ALL--ONE AND THE SAME'...AMEN AND AMEN~

SHIRLEY, WOW, WHAT A IMAGNATION YOU HAVE TO PEN THIS TYPE OF STORY. YOU PAINTED THE PICTURE SO REAL. THE FEELING OF A PERSON IN PRISON WOULD HAVE TO BE VERY GRUMSOME AND LONELY, DARK AND FORBIDDEN OF ANY HUMAN KINDNESS. MOST HAVE TIME TO REFLECT AS YOU POINTED OUT HOW THEY REGRET THIER ERRORS AND CHOICE'S OF A SINFUL LIFE AND ARE WILLING TO GIVE THE LORD THEIR LIFE. NOW THIS IS A STORY AND TESTIMONARY GIRL.

Hello Brenda, This is Pastor/Sis Shirley shaw.I finally came bk. to NetHugs, just wondered how you were doing, and your Family..I missed everyone a bunch..(When I wrote this poem,it was actually written for My Son, Steven)..He had gotten into trouble doing Drugs, several yrs. ago.He spent time in St. Jospeph Booneville, and Algoa, in Jefferson city,mo..He kept refusing to go to his PO Appts., thought he cld. get away with it..Finally, It dawned on him, that it must be done..So, I am Proud to say, that today, Steven, has been Drug Free, for over 3+years now, and has completed all of his things..He got a letter from the cts., stating that He has all of his rights, back now too. That is one reason, I haden't been on here, for so Long..Praise God', for steering Him in the right Path...I went to Jeff City, ever weekend, except once, when it was all icy..So glad all of this is Over..... <3 Even Devin, his Son, wld. not talk to him, for quite awhile. Devin is 16 now, and we had custody of Him..Things are much better now..Love You, GF..
