Curtis Beasley Sr.
                   Death Row, Florida
                             By:  Curtis W. Beasley, Death Row, Raiford, Florida

                      I was arrested for a murder I did not do.
                             I sat for a year, then came two.
                             Finally my trial, such as it was.
                        Innocent doesn't matter, It never does.
                       Twelve jurors listened, but did not here.
             They looked at some pictures, and cried a few tears.
                  The Judge said death ! And put me on the row.
                            Now I sit here , with no place to go.
                         The days are long, the nights are too.
                  I day dream a lot, cause there's nothing to do.
                            Is this the way my life will end ?
                     Strapped in "The Chair", for another's sin.
                        Does anyone care this is "Wrong" ?
                         Can anyone see I don't belong ?
                      Maybe this is how it was meant to be.
                At least two know the truth, The lord and me.

I was wrongfully convicted of murder.  The victim was a friend I had known for seventeen years.  My conviction was based on less than overwhelming circumstantial evidence.  My case has been appealed to the Florida Supreme Court.  I am awaiting their decision now.  I was arrested Jan 17, 1996.  It took two years to get to trial.  I have been on death row since June 3, 1998.   Because my case is presently in the Flrida Supreme Court on appeal, I can not discuss the facts of the case.  Soon as a decision is made I will make available what facts I can to the webpage.    Thank you
