A Letter To The Prison


This is written to the man in charge of the prison. I say man because I understand running a prison cannot be easy. Still, just as the Holy spirit compelled Paul, Peter, Theophilis, John, and Jude to have write their letters, I to feel compelled in the same way. My name is Dion Phillips Crown, a man saved by the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am writing a complaint and commendation.

I commend you for the programs that you instill in your prison. They have been helping benifitting the inmates and those who come in contact with them. You have welcomed prison ministries for a long time. For the more intense prison you have offered rehab programs. I sympathize what you must go through.

Still, here is where I have a complaint. I want to start off this continuation of this heartfelt letter by letting you know that I speak on behalf of credible resources, people that I, myself would vouch for. This limited list includes my brother who was a former inmate and close friends. I understand that sometimes their are unfortunate and severe consequences for ones actions, and that person should take responsibility for his or her actions. Still, I digress. I have heard, from creditable people, disturbing things about only some of your guards; things that I would not put it pass them. I have heard of extreme brutality. I am not writing to tell instances and give examples. I have always heard of murders that go on behind these walls of reformitory: how inadequate food it served. This list can certainly go on.

Still, there is a point to this letter. I just want you to know that I know, which means that most likely others know. It is not decent. It is immoral. It is wrong, and people like that never win. They may last long, but it usually ends badly for them one way or another. Now, please do not be mistaken. I am not here for any exposing, or anything of that nature. That is never my agenda. Nor do I have one, but I am writing to let you know that Jesus knows. Some may laugh. Some may make fun of me. Some may not take me serious, but as said, this letter is heartfelt. Therefore, I do implore you to give your prison order to some decent amount of degree. No one is perfect. If it was then it would not be punishment. However, I do believe in humane punishment, and by the grace of God, if anyone can carry it out, it is you (the man in charge of the prison).

May you have many blessings,

                                       and wisdom

Yours truly:

             Dion Phillips Crown

    I think that you wrote a very sweet poem. Everyone needs to take responsibility; not just the inmates. I like that.
