Slowly,
Walking down,
The long prison halls.

Painfully,
Carrying,
My weights.

Sadly,
Not one wants to ,
Be by my side.

Forcefully,
Putting on,
A smile.

Secretly,
Wishing for,
My loved ones.

Carelessly,
Dragging,
My heels.

Cautiously,
Making sure,
No one sees me cry.
Articulately,
Wanting,
To die.

Fiercely,
Putting,
Down my foot.

Sternly,
Telling,
Them no.

Proudly,
Holding,
My head high.....

Prison=School

This is excellent, because I can totally sympathize. But perhaps the "prison=school" is a bit off-putting. I mean, you get the idea that you hate the school, rather than just the people in it. I think that the whole thing is excellent, especially how you did the short, three-lined stanzas, except for that last one there. Keep it up! : )
