The West Memphis Three (One Year Free)

West Memphis Three

One year ago today
The West Memphis Three
Finally walked free
A day so many
Never thought
They would ever live to see
Beaten but never broken
Having survived horrors unspoken
They emerged free
As happy as a can be
Just to have survived
Such a travesty
And misuse of
A corrupt justice system
That did all it could to do them in
Now one year later
We celebrate
In hopes that the truth
Will someday be heard and seen
And they will be exonerated
Our beautiful West Memphis Three
