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.
