This is wonderful, Geoffrey.
CONGRATULATIONS on your new freedom.

It may be only fleeting, but it won't be just once. I think that once you get there, you can find your way back. I know that I get lucky that way, sometimes.

Cheers,

Another Geoff

Someone needs to paint a picture to go with this. (not me!)

So VIVID.

Hey BG ...

I've been ... and for all intents and purposes ... still am
in a prison like yours BG ...
but I'm out on parole at the moment.
I don't know why ... it sure as hell isn't for good behavior ... :P

I'm working hard to keep on the straight (no pun intended) and narrow.
The fact that I was handed a life sentence for a crime I did not commit
never leaves my mind ...
so I am mindful.
There is no reprieve ... no second trial ... no acquittal ... no pardon ...
no chance to be proven innocent ...
no justice.

You know as well as I do ... there is simply life.

You and I seem to have been given a second chance ...
or in my case ... another ... um ... and another ... um ... and yes ... another.

Will it be fleeting ?

Who cares !

I'll take what I can get ... and enjoy it as long as it lasts.
Might I suggest the same to you.
When all is said and done ... what choice do we have ?
...
but yet ... it is after all a choice we've made.

We could have refused parole ...
stayed in our little cells
laid under our little cots
... and waited for death.

The gates have opened ...
we have ventured forth from safety into the unknown ...
and I don't know about you ...
but I'm damn proud of myself.

I'm proud of you.

Like in one of my poems ...
this is a resurrection.
The outcome is not in our hands ...
Lady Fate will have her way.
It's comforting to know that the effort was mine.
the results ... ???

Like I said ... who cares !

Not my problem !!!!

smile
