A Prisoner – By Michelle M. (Clemency Recipient 5/5/16 By: Barack Obama)

Each day it’s a reality I’m

a prisoner of every nationality

Things we do in our life today

catches up with us someday

Some get by some get caught

coming to prison was never a thought

Just finding ways to survive

I thank God I’m still alive

When they told me I was under arrest

My heart nearly burst in my chest

They sentenced me to some time indeed

it was the Lord telling me to take heed

He said my child at the time you were

falling from my grace

I had to save you by allowing you to come

to such a place.

My freedom was taken away now I will be

walking out this place in a few days.
