Caged & Convicted

I am a murderer, or so I’ve been told;

Having been convicted, I sit here alone;

This grimy cell has too long been my home;

My appeals have exhausted, there’s nowhere else left to go;

The clock on the walls tick closer to twelve;

In some mere minutes, I’ll be sent to hell;

Guilty by charge, I rather feel compelled;

To unburden this soul before I’m felled;

I took what I wanted, from anyone, anywhere;

They didn’t deserve it, it was just so unfair;

The warden has now arrived at my door;

To lead me on my last walk, down the corridor;

I’d never taken life so seriously before;

Now that the poison will be injected, it’ll course through my veins;

My systems will shut down, I pray there’s no pain;

To my parents, I’m sorry, my life was lived in vain;

To my victims’ families, I apologise again;

I‘m a condemned man with no one to blame;

I‘m a condemned soul, filled with sorrow and shame;

Time has now come and so I shall pay;

For my sins without any delay.

      1. It was! However, the entirety of this idea generated from my General Paper essay which was related to capital punishment and thus, I decided to put myself in the shoes of a convict and come up with something unique this one time. Your comments are truly appreciated 😊

  1. Very deep! We don’t really think while acting and only realise when repentance is vain. Wonderfully written. May Allah guide us to the righteous path so that we may not see such a day.
