Life In America - Poem by Darwin Henry Beuning

American Society

Is very unforgiving

There are few, if any

Second chances

Regardless of your age

Or the time which has passed

A question which every job application has

'Have you ever'

You've paid your fine

You've served your time

Ready to begin life anew

But then, again and again

'Have you ever'

In America,

Misdeeds are not erased

They always remain

Staring you in the face

'Have you ever'
