Here stands the accused
Bring her before the bench
Her shrunken figure belies the carnage that she creates

Persistent images of a savage assault
Have been brought before you today
Let not the fear in this charlatans eyes
Be the forced that compels your will to be swayed

Disregard the evidence
Behold this evil in deceiving form
Her tears an affront to the life she claimed
Do not mistake this hollow display
For remorse or shame

Oh, children
Are you not aghast
At the sight of this woman
Who broke your home
The court has witnessed this basest betrayal
Of a mother to brood whom she called her own
So if a soul you possess
Condemn her to death

Tear down my defenses
Leaving me without an opportunity
To contest this warped presentation
Of the word of law
I have seen your so called justice wane
And I am present for the fall

Standing upon the threshold of the prison gates
I wonder if this is how I'll live out my days
Hands bound
Drowning in the derision of all these degenerate voices
An unholy sound

You may have heard my name
Carried on the whispers of those who defamed me
And left me defenseless

What else can be said?
Cannot allow the fear to remove my humanity
Every night spent praying for a painless death
My heart
My soul
Has been imprisoned
Without a single piece of evidence
To justify this process

These walls consume my life
The stars
The constellations
And all the wonders of the night sky
Have been stolen from my sight
