Prison Cell.

Locked behind these bars---
All that's left is scars.

Waiting every day---
For these years to fade away.

I cannot get out---
I am constantly filled with doubt.

Will I survive today---
Or will they put me in my grave?

Never knowing is the worst---
I feel as if I'm cursed.

But really I cursed myself---
And locked myself in this cell.

A cell that I will stay in---
until my sentence ends.

And when it finally does...I will scream at the top of my lungs, lamenting as I run.
I will not even care who hears...why worry about such petty fears?

I have grown up in this wretched garbage can.
It has turned me into who I am,
And it has changed me from a kid to a man.

Inspired by the song "Dull Life" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
