Happy Birthday Damien Echols

West Memphis Three

Happy birthday
To the man
Who knows the importance
Of making the best
Of everyday
Because he knows
How quickly
And easily
It can all be
Taken away
Happy birthday
To the man
Who has every right
To live his life
In anger
And being bitter
But to his credit
Chooses not to
Instead he chooses to
Keep his cool
Be grateful for
What and who
He has
And does what he can
To continue
To live his life
As zen
As he can
So Happy Birthday
To That man
The one I call my hero
The wonderful Damien Echols
