Poetry: I want to write| thecampusmagazine.com

I want to write

And voice my thoughts

But a problem i have

Know not how to write

I want to write

A letter to my love

A letter of love

But i have no hands

I still want to write

A long letter of expressions

Of  happiness and joy

But i got no paper

In this dungeon

Full of rats and filth

Strong dark iron bars

No paper within reach

I want to write a letter

To my wife and children

To apologise for mine deeds

And beg for their mercies

I want to write a letter

Giving reasons to my family

To tell them of the fatefull day

That gave a free ride

To this dungeon of mine

I want to write a letter

But my hands are no more

Beaten by the rocks in the mines

Cut by the pebbles in the mines

I want to write a letter

And warn all out their

To play by their cards

And not fall prey of the blue men

I want to write a letter

But i have no pen

Papers are not available

And the bell has rang

I want to write a letter

But i have to run to parade

And manage to escape a few painful whips

And to lengthen my stay in the world.
