A Prisoner's Plea
 

A PRISONER’S PLEA

Here where I’m living is sheer hell

So many things happening, half of which I can’t tell

I had so many dreams, which just shattered in front of me

Now loneliness and darkness are all that I see

I was happy and had a good life when I was free

But I was foolish; drugs took a hold of me

Now I’m looking at a world, which was once mine

A world I will never again find

I know you’re out there in someone else’s arms

And getting what is rightfully yours, a man’s charms

When I had you, I ignored you all the time

Looking somewhere else, and not at what was mine

Now my world is so terrible without you

And there is absolutely nothing I can do

In my world I get up every day and have a bite to eat

And then I go back to being on my feet

There are so many of us in here, it’s a crime

All of us paying for our mistakes, doing our times

I was weak, but I just wouldn’t listen to you

When you said my friends were bad, I said it wasn’t true

They brought drugs into my life

And for that I ignored even you, my wife

And now I can’t stop hearing your voice

Constantly telling me, I had made the wrong choice

I had made the choice to stay with my friends

Not knowing it would lead to my untimely end

Tell me that there is a place for me in your heart

And maybe it will be easier for me to make a new start

I’m here hoping you’ll forgive me

And save from my miseries
