Life Sentence


I’m doing time
on planet Earth,
my sentence started
right at birth

The sentence is,
I’m here for life
and with mistakes
it will be rife

The sentence cannot
be commuted –
I’m here ‘til to dust
I’ve been transmuted

I’m sentenced here
with other lifers –
We follow each
our own Pied Pipers

We walk our paths
from birth to death
marking time
with each drawn breath

& When our sentences
come to end
we hope to heaven
we’ll ascend

Where, free from being
bound in time
we’ll start to know
a joy sublime

And see that real life
never dies –
that we just transform
like butterflies

We’ll lay aside
our outer shells
and rise above
our private hells
