    to the father that has given me birth,
    have i been cursed on the streets of satans turf?
    or have i been blessed to pass the test
    to live for today, and take one more breath?

    "oh say can you see..." this misery
    this black girl has come to see in this land of liberty?
    i've been living my life at the roll of the dice that
    may pay the price that may cost my life.

    low and behold, the bell has tolled,
    its craps i've rolled.
    now i sit in this hell, in an 8x10 cell
    with a story to tell in jail.

    heavenly father i come to you to see what you can do
    to make me anew..........amen

    Welcome to Destee Lexuslady

    Very nice poem. Keep flowing.

    Once the eyes have opened and one can see. There is no justice in the land for thee. It is heart breaking and it challenges hope. But it is all superficial man created the dope. They studied us, when we haven't studied ourselves. They know all our strenghths and weakness of health. So they play on each one, those we didn't and were not sure about. But had a gut feeling emotions stirring about.

    Well a new day is coming and the truth will be told. Released will be the mission that each of us must hold. Be ready to accept the good and the bad. Some truth is enlighting some truth is real sad. In the mean time a prayer like yours is a blessing.

    It holds up the sprit and keeps us from stressing. So continue to hold on tight during the ride. Change is a coming and we must hold our pride. In the past. In the future. In the truth and the light. Rest for now dear darling and I wish you a good night.

    "oh say can you see..." this misery
    this black girl has come to see in this land of liberty?
