Remain sitting at your table and listen,
simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary.
The world will freely offer itself to you
to be unmasked , it has no choice,
it will roll in at your feet.
This is what the book had said to me
as I tried not to be weak.
I had asked the book for answers
that I did truly seek.
Had an appointment with my attorney
later on that week,
Doubted myself when we were done
no longer feeling meek.
Looked back at what the book had said
and I began to weep.
So I sat down at my table and began
to listen while staying still.
alone and contemplating
how did I really feel?
Another week went by and again I
asked the book about my fate.
no longer could I wait.
Asked the book to take a look ahead
at what was on my plate.
it told me to be strong
And to put on the armor of light
so I prayed about my freedom
each and every night
Today I called my lawyer
still no answers or offers to see
no word from the States Attorney
no phone call with a plea
There I sat again feeling sorry for thee
I was inconsolable
looking for some reason for me to be
eyed my notebook at the end of my
bed looking right back at me
I opened it to write and realized I already
had an answer and it was one that made me free
it came from this blank paper
and this blue fuzzy book you see!
So I sat there at my table listening
simply waited, quiet and still, solitary
totally unsure of my fate
but positive and hopeful that I would soon see the gate
like the book had freely
said it would be unmasked to me
it would roll in at my feet then I would surely see
I know this refers to the answers I seek
again I have an appointment with my attorney in a week
I am remaining strong and putting on my armor of light
while continuing to write and continuing to fight
for my freedom I do pray each and every night
