The Web Poetry Corner - Philip Claude Andermann - No Prison for Nothing

No Prison for Nothing

by

Philip Claude Andermann

WAS NELSON MENELA IMPRISONED "FOR NOTHING"?
YES, IN THAT HE DID NOTHING WRONG.

BUT "WHAT DOES NOT KILL ME MAKES ME STRONGER."
ALTHOUGH THEY CONSTANTLY MADE HIM BREAK HIS BACK WITH SLAVE LABOR, HE GREW TREMENDOUSLY IN JAIL.
STRONGER AND STRONGER.
LIKE THE COUNT OF MONTE CHRISTO BY DUMAS,
HE ATTAINED HIS REVENGE THAT HAD BUILT UP YEAR AFTER YEAR,
BUT IT WAS ALL REVENGE FOR GOOD.
HE MADE SURE THOSE 10,000 DAYS WERE NOT ALL "FOR NOTHING."

THE ABUSED, EVEN IF ABUSED "FOR NOTHING,"
CAN ALWAYS CHANGE THEIR KARMIC PRISON AROUND
INTO UNIQUE POSITIVE MISSION.
