Concrete Walls

BY: heidiH


Her letters arrive filled with anguish,
apologies, and tear-stained pages.
She speaks of isolation, little sleep,
cold floors, cold showers,
guards that hate.
She begs forgiveness
for what she's done;
she asks for one more
chance at redemption.

I cannot touch her
in this place of lost souls.
But You can.
You, who have the ability
to penetrate walls of concrete,
steel bars and a prisoner's mindset.

Hear my anguish as I cry out to You.
My hope, my redeemer,
come to her in her darkest hours.
When nothing can console her,
be her blanket of protection.
Encircle her with a peace
that defies explanation,
family and friends who care,
and a mother's love,
that no circumstances could ever change.
Let her know that with You
she has a life worth living.
