These lessons we endure.

What we go through in our respective travails of life can be likened to sentences that we are mandated to serve.

With the Almighty serving as:

Judge, Jury, Warden and Executioner.

We are slaves, prisoners to that which controls us.

Like the prison industrial complex, our time on this planet we are subject to:

Years of incarceration


The death penalty

Parole on good behavior


Freedom, the sweet savor of freedom.

A power likened to the chains that once restrained us being washed away.


As for me I choose the power that is procured by freedom – I am free and made consequential by virtue of that.
