Incarcerated

"Incarcerated"

As I write this poem
I'll come to the point
It's only for those
Heading for the joint



You begin your life
A rebellious kid
Living in a cell
For the wrongs you did



No confidence you had
No self esteem
Only in your sleep
While in a dream



Whether in for a nickle
Or in for a dime
You tell yourself
I'll stay clean
And do my time


The years go by
Another time another joint
You never moved on
You never got the point



Soon you realize
Life passed you by
Inside these walls
Just waiting to die


Should you be wise
And heed this plea
A life full of happiness
You still can see.
