~behind Bars~ - Poem by Tracie Brown
I'm sitting Behind Bars wanting to be free
But Society just won't let go of me.
I'm sorry for the Crime that I have done
And I just want to get Home to my Son
Cause being Behind Bars ain't no Fun.
Being Behind Bars is worse then I thought
And All 10 Years I Fought and Fought.
Being Behind Bars caused me to Fight for my Life
And my Crime came with Terrible Price.
You don't get Respect unless you Command it
And living In Prison, you better Demand it.
Prison is a Place that I don't even wish my Enemies could be
It's not a Place that I desire to Be.
It's crazy lying in this Cell 24 Hours a Day
and not having a Dam Word to Say.
Prison is Hell no matter what people say
It's a Place where you better know how to Pray!
It's a Place where who you are is tested everyday
And you better be able to back up every word you Say.
It's a Place where Everyday your Fighting People off of you
Hope ing that you'll make it through.
Being Behind Bars puts you in Survive Mode
And always keeps you on your Toes.
So take my Advice, Being Behind Bars is not the Place to be.
Cause things in here is Rough and we fight for ours Viciously! ! !
