Behind Bars

July 29, 2008
By Kellie Kozak, Stacyville, IA

Everything fades away
In the blending of the days
All the hope melts away
The silent cries won't stay at bay

The same old sights
That you can't bare
Barely free
To breathe the air

Light and dark
It's all the same
Always searching
For someone to blame

Trapped in a world
Beyond your control
Needing to get far
Far away from the bars

That keep you here
Without a voice
One dark place
In your eyes and your heart
