Until All Hope is Gone

Regina Puckett

A sweet innocent game of playing in the mud

Two friends crossing their hearts with pretend blood

Until one day the two children grow up and grow apart

Two blood brothers no longer connected at the heart

Now one is behind bars – the other is standing on the tower

Where each man will watch the countdown to the midnight hour

When one man will slowly walk down the death row’s hall

As the other man considers his best friend’s sad fall

The prison clock ticking down each second until all hope is gone

A witness to one man choosing right and the other choosing wrong
