Prison


Handcuffed my past behind the bars
Stabbed my life into prison
Shot my guts back into my conscience
Whipped my mind back into shape
Poisoned my heart with such misdeeds
Jumping from the height of fear
Sentenced my speech beyond my tongue
Hung my pride, fading in every noose

    Wow I'm very impressed. Truth is I dont read poetry really, in fact I'm not a big reader in general and coming here has changed this. I'm enjoying what I'm reading here. It's great. (Report) Reply
