It seems ridiculous

After Philippians 1:18-26

It seems ridiculous
to sit here, chains
adorning my wrists
and ankles, and speak
of choosing a path.
Choices become few
and narrowed in a cell.
I wait for resolution,
which might or might not
come. But as I wait,
I know that if I do
nothing more than sit
and write letters, then
the work continues,
in spheres above and
spheres below. It does
seem ridiculous and 
foolish to a man, but
eternal things usually
