Let go and live.

I feel like I’m in a cage
A prisoner sent to life.
No cell mates, no friends
Not one other prisoner just me, I’m alone.
Yea iv made mistakes
Yes more than one
Most were huge
Few were small
Aren't we supposed to learn from them though?
The warden is strict
Certain rules must apply
My hope is for the future
My sentence to be done
Hopefully that will come true
Before I come undone.

I hope that everyne sees that no matter how hard something is at the moment there is always hope for the future.

This is really good! The photo you picked gives good imagery for the reader. It's very powerful. However, I sort of wish you added more so I could understand what happened a little better. Other than that, this is truly amazing! :)

Definitely good use of adjectives. Love the picture it paints

I like this poem. You were more descriptive and thorough in this poem than some of your other ones. There are grammatical errors, but they don't interefere with the poem. Your note at the bottom, "there is always hope for the future", is very true.

There's very nice rhythm and flow here. I think this is your best poem.
