Innocent Man

Poem By Lovina Sylvia Chidi

An innocent man he was
The perfect gentleman
The kind of man
you could only spin out
in your endless dreams

He was declared guilty
and a sentence was passed
without a glance
before he even had a chance

An innocent man he was
A man of truth
A man of pride
A man whose words
would sit down gently by your side

Seeking for freedom
Seeking for justice
Seeking to be heard
judged wrongly instead

He was a man of love
He sought salvation from above
Nothing was straight
All the answers
were bent like a curve

An innocent man he was
With no regrets
His worst fear
he had already met
misjudged, complaints lodged

There were two sides
with options so wide
Only one was chosen
The other ignored
Where was the trust?
When was it lost?

What would it take
to sacrifice at stake?
To prove he was an innocent man
