Time Will Tell - Poem by Dwayne Bailey

I gave up my hopes
I gave up my dreems,
I gave up my life
or at least so it seems;
For I chose a life
of crime and sin,
And now with bars
I am held within.
I gave up the woman
I loved oh so much,
Never to feel
her loves tender touch.
I gave up my scooter
and freedom to ride,
Oh the pain I've felt
oh the river I've cried!
So for now I sit lonely
locked in a cell,
Will I make it this time?
Only time will tell
