Away from our families
For months at a time
It's So outta Sync
So outta rhyme

We did what we did
To spend our time away
We look forward to the future
To our release day

We try to do our best
To get out of here
So we can be with our family
So our love ones can be near

Everyone says it's
Hard out here today
They are telling the truth
But where theres a will theres a way

Trying to do right
Is so outta range
But God I do admit
That I need to change.

I wrote this while being locked up in a youth developement center. I felt this explains everything and how we need to change.
