Damien Echols Death Row Letter Year 16 - Various Artists/Johnny Depp

Today

 

The guards made me bleed again

 

They chained my feet so tight

 

I could barely move

 

I bleed through my socks

 

Last month it was my left ankle

 

Today it was the right

 

When I wash

 

The soap burns like fire

 

But I have to keep my ankles clean

 

Because I don't have any alcohol

 

Or peroxide

 

Nothing to kill the bacteria or infections

 

And this place is filthy

 

I can't remember

 

What it's like

 

To walk as a

Human being anymore

 

My cell is so small

 

That I can only take

Two steps

 

Anytime I'm brought out

 

However briefly or infrequently

 

I have chains on my hands and feet

 

As well as guards hanging on me

 

Been well over 16 years

Since I've actually walked anywhere

 

Sometimes I still can't wrap my mind around that

 

I'm working on my 17th year now

 

There were times when I thought

 

'Surely

 

Someone's gonna put a stop to this

 

'Surely someone

 

Is gonna do something'

 

But they never do

 

Time just rolls on

 

It's insanity

 

I am truly amazed

 

At what they've been allowed to

Get away with

 

And for how long

 

Ah well

 

Does no good to dwell on it

 

Either I waste my energy by focusing on things I

Cannot change

 

Or I conserve my energy

 

And apply it to small

Things I can change

 

That's what the I ching calls

 

The taming power

 

Of the small
