State-administered death is always a greater horror than any other by virtue of the methodical reasoning that precedes it. French philosopher Albert Camus wrote that "capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders". "The United States' concept of justifiable homicide/Executions in criminal law stands on the dividing line between an excuse, justification and an exculpation. In other words, it takes a case that would otherwise have been a murder or another crime representing intentional killing, and either excuses or justifies the individual accused from all criminal liability or treats the accused differently from other intentional killers.

Delirium - A mind on Death Row


November 2004   - July 2010 only some years older ...


      My name is Beunka Adams. I'm 21 year old black man here on Texas death row. I was arrested two years ago September 3rd 2002 at the age of 19. My trail procedures began back in June of 2004 and ended August 31, 2004.

I came from a small town where I had very little resources and minimal support. My life has been filled poverty and a great many anxieties. Due to financial burdans, confusion, and drug abuse my lifes conditions only got worse and I ended up getting into something I deeply regret. I seriously tried to overcome the socioeconomic barriers I faced daily but was unsucessful. Now I'm trying to fight for my life but my knowledge of the law is very limited and the few resources I had are even smaller now,

I need help...

I am seeking any kind of support that anyone is willing to give me, legal advice, books, pro bono representation and moral support. But most of all right now I need a real sincere friend. I am cooped up in this little cell 23 hours a day with nothing to do, and it's a struggle trying to maintain my sanity. I hope that who ever reads this will find it in their heart, to reach out to me in friendship. I know you want regret it. I'm a decent person and a compasionate friend.

Hope to hear from you soon and have a beautiful day!

Respectfully Always

Beunka Adams 




November 2004 - Juli 2010 nur einige Jahre älter …


mein Name ist Beunka Adams. Ich bin ein 21 jähriger schwarzer Mann hier im texanischen Todestrakt. Ich wurde vor 2 Jahren, am 3. September 2002, im Alter von 19 Jahren verhaftet.

Mein Ermittlungsverfahren begann im Juni 2004 und endete am 31. August 2004.
Ich kam aus einer kleinen Stadt, wo ich sehr wenige Mittel und nur minimale Unterstützung hatte. Mein Leben war von Armut und einer Vielzahl von Ängsten geprägt.
Aufgrund finanzieller Belastungen, Verwirrung und Drogenmissbrauch wurden meine Lebensbedingungen nur noch schlimmer und letztendlich rutschte ich in etwas hinein, was ich zutiefst bedauere.

Ich habe ernsthaft versucht die sozioökonomischen Barrieren zu überwinden mit denen ich täglich konfrontiert wurde, aber es hat nicht geklappt. Nun versuche ich für mein Leben zu kämpfen aber mein Wissen über das Gesetz ist sehr begrenzt, und die wenigen Ressourcen, die ich hatte, sind nun sogar noch kleiner geworden.

Ich brauche Hilfe...

Ich suche jede Art der Unterstützung die mir jemand entgegenbringen möchte, Rechtsberatung, Bücher, kostenlose Vertretung und moralische Unterstützung.
Aber am meisten brauche ich momentan einen wahren, aufrichtigen Freund. Ich bin 23 Stunden am Tag ohne Beschäftigung in diese kleine Zelle eingesperrt, und es ist ein Kampf meine geistige Gesundheit zu erhalten.

Ich hoffe, dass wer auch immer dies liest es in seinem Herzen findet, um mich in Freundschaft zu erreichen. Ich weiß, dass Du es nicht bereuen wirst. Ich bin ein anständiger Mensch und ein mitfühlender Freund.

Ich hoffe bald von Dir zu hören und wünsche Dir einen schönen Tag!

    Delirium - A mind on Death Row

Dear Reader

  In this book, you will find a collection of my thoughts and experiences. Most of which occurred since I’ve been on death row but others a ghosts of my past as a free man. I titled this collection the way I have because my time here on death row has driven me to great depths of paranoia, insanity, and back to reality. All the time poetry stuck with me and tough I won’t tell you which were written when I’m sure you will be able to tell. Also, keep in mind several of these poems were geared more for spoken word poetry. But please enjoy and if you have any questions or would like to correspond feel free to write and I will respond. Peace.

My Dream

©Beunka Adams

Like me


He looks like me

Walks like me

Talks like me

But for some reason

He ain't like me... 

He has a prejudice

Against me

Says he hates me

Binds and enslaves me

Says I won't never be free

I told him

Brother, this ain't right

He said to me

Just don't fight

I fall to my knees

Beg the Most High; Please

Now chains cut my skin

For some unknown sin

He still hates me

Mis-uses and abuses me

So through prayer I flee

Listening for the Most High

      To answer me ....




I search my mind

There’s a light I can’t find

I can feel it

But I can’t see it

There’s darkness all around me

It’s invading the soul of me

There’s no way to fight

Accept to flee to the light

But the light can’t be found

It’s quiet and makes no sound

I think I’m nearing the end

This situation won’t bend

I fear for once

I really can’t win…
