Turn The Page - Poem by Dwayne Bailey

The book of my life is open,
there is a story thats told;
Just open up to page number one,
and watch the story unfold.
You start with the many mistakes,
that in life I've made;
The many errors in judgement I've seen,
then you turn the page.

You see the crimes that I have done,
the heartache I have caused;
You see my many stints in jail,
represented by a long pause.
You will feel all the pain that I have felt,
the fury and the rage;
You will see all the tears I've cried,
then you'll turn the page.

Yes my life is an open book,
But theres still much more to come;
For I'm in a long pause right now,
my new life has yet begun;
For once I finally am realesed,
and leave behind my cage;
Then you will see my life anew,
as you turn the page.
