People get put in prisons for wanting more. Animals get put in prisons for wanting love.

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in a prison-free life today having been freed from ‘want'”)

You got put in prison for wanting more.

The black bars are lines from your discontent.

The only “want” out for you is restore:

Bring back God. Want nothing but the repent.

I am a prisoner of “want.” One cot

is all I got in the lone cell of “lack.”

God’s got the key to set me free. The plot

is: ” I have all I need. I don’t look back!”

God releases the prisoners of “want.”

Our parole is painless: “Have what I need.”

If we are breathing today nonchalant,

we’re set free. Forget breath, forget we’re freed.

We can be sure the world will haunt and daunt.

Jesus sets free a prisoner of “want.”
