William spring onions.

poem by: Christopher Russon
Written on Oct 13, 2017

Beware some would say
He is beyond repair
You wouldn't wish to
See him anywhere
Such an unwelcoming sight
If you saw him out at night.
In trouble often with the law
Then locked behind prison doors
He spent some time within those cells
A place he called a living hell
For many years he would rant and rage
His life then turned another page.
Some thing happened to set him free
He found his solice in poetry
The judge he saw a different man
Not like the man he knew before
A second chance that opening door.
He said goodbye to all his crimes
No longer the villain he used to be
He made his peace through poetry.
