"I pray someone will show me some mercy and give me a second chance at life. I'd like to have children someday."


Remember Me

by Melinda George


Prison's no place for an innocent child

There's no room for the meek, no room for the mild.


The nights are so lonely I toss in my bed

The days are so dreary I face them with dread.


Grant me one prayer as you did from the cross

For that thief who knew that his life was a loss.


Please come to this prison where I sit alone

Surrounded by razor wire, guard towers, and stone.


Broken and penitent, forgotten and lost

on the ash heap of regret where my life was tossed.


I've no other place left on this earth

Remember me O' Lord! Renew me by birth.


Come to this prison, enter my cell

Save me, forgive me, in this man-made hell.


And if in this life, no home here I see

In your Kingdom of Forgiveness, Lord, please

Remember me!
