Reality Of My Stupidity - Poem by james d nall,jr

Living my life, like there were no fences
Without a thought, of the consequences
Didn't give a damn, about tomorrow or yesterday
Only concerned, with whats happening today
My life, like a candle, burning at both ends
Didn't need anyone, not even friends
When the lies and excuses, started to fail
I gave society the chance, to throw me in jail
After having my fun and doing my crime
All I've got to look forward to, is hard time
So, if you step off the path and start to stray
Try to remember, what I've said today
The day will come, when everythings gone
Behind these bars, you're all alone
Don't burn your bridges, while you're in here
'Cause, outside, no one will be left to care
Friends and family, will be subtle, but clear
With you back around, they'll all live in fear
You'll never live it down, thats so true
You might want to find, somewhere else to live, too
No matter what you prove or how much you object
Forever, you'll always be, the Prime Suspect
