Convents to Convicts

by Michael D Nalley   Jun 13, 2005

From contemplation to conviction
Vows to valleys of addiction
From bells to cells Heaven to hell
each woman has a story to tell

Choices to voices coming to call
influencing the life of us all
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Love to love, lust to lust

Religiously in habit clothed
Virtues to vices loathed
Pray to Jesus who has risen
free us from this awful prison
