In A World of Sin

Poem Commentary

This is an account of being isolated by imprisonment awaiting my last final breaths on the earth. Not an actual true event but what it would be like to face the death penalty.

In A World of Sin

Left dreaming in a world of sin
I turned my life over to my eternal king
Left crying for truth, I begged for life
as i watched my body get cut by the knife

facing public execution, minutes away from lethal injection
I was trapped behind these walls, bleeding these confessions
I just had one question to ask my Lord
hadn't I been here before, it seemed so familiar

Left in isolation, shut out from this cold ,dark world
bruised and abused, I still knew my purpose in life
everyday I was caught in the web of sin
buried beneath the ashes of the world again

Where was I being taken, led down this hallway to doom
Had I been mistaken, now I face death in this haunted room
I stood as they strapped  me down to this chair
I said my goodbyes in a final prayer

I looked on in the minutes awaiting my death
longing to feel that last rush of breath
clinging to the table as the drugs entered my veins 
I called out to God as death overcame

My body was shutting down quite fast
the drugs from the needle discharging at last
every vein in my body tingled in fear
as i fell asleep forever, I was no longer here

Wonderful. It is written God's spirit about truth. We are living in sin which is damning our lives. Well written. We can not redeem ouselves, but to pray and practice in the way of JESUS R K CHOWDARY.

That's the good thing about redemption... It's never too late. Nice job.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
