Lock Down

*Author’s name withheld

Is where I be

surrounded in steel, they captivate me

behind these doors

a system’s hidden way to ignore

you, me – has no limits to anyone

Some old, others young

I’ve come across many new faces

all playing the same game races

Once these words to me were wisely said -

(at that time these words were too wise for my head)

“A money maker winner never gets caught”

I’d choose a different game I’ve now finally got

the message in that

if you don’t get it, you’ll be back

yelling out these same cell cages

all built up, surrounded with different rages

It’s never too late to change – no doubt

I’m so sick of this same prison route

If changes aren’t made then I am bound

to continue to see where I am now

lock down
