Jail - Poem by Jamie Haddock

I knew it was to late
After I'd had my court date
I don't know if it was fate
But now I'm a detainee of the state
No matter that this Jail I hate
If only I'd known my freedom was at stake
But now all I can do is sit here and wait
For the day I can exit this gate.

    Your poem feels as if it is written
    from real life experience. If thats the
    case, it is a very brave write.
    Hope that part of your life is far behind
    you. Thank you for sharing.
    Kindest Regards Slim. x.
