"The man who takes offense when offence is not intended is a fool
However the man who takes offence when it is intended is an even greater fool"
Ralph Waldo Emerson


Cold iron bars.
Cold unfeeling light.
Cold closed doors.
Cold Empty nights.
Cold burning stars.
My Cold dusty home,
A thousand miles away

My Hurt wife.
Hurt victims.
Hurt children.
Hurt faces.
Hurt economy.
My Hurt soul,
Is redemption still possible?

My Lonely Cell
Lonely people
Lonely nights
Lonely prisoners
Lonely lights
My Lonely fight...

All because of greed and lies

It's time to say goodbye...

I must escape tonight.


The author's comments:
I wrote this because of the tragic amount of suicide inside prisons.
I guess I just found it depressing and realized I could best share the emotion in poetry.
