Call out in the night as the watches begin lift up your voices, lift up your lament. The prisoner’s cry rings as he is a human soul with no recourse. Held within the prison of hatred and pain, there is no way out and no way in. In my father’s house I was trusted. Now I meet the hard eyes of suspicion and distrust. Desire, I conquered you long ago. There is nothing I want now. There is nothing you can offer me. I will say no.
