Behind the Bars

Cold bars of steel

Bread roll for a meal

Excruciating silence

Guilty for alleged violence

 

After a ferocious fight

He is blind to the light

And in the corner of his cell

He is reluctant to compel

The only decision he can make

His own life he will take

 

To break the chain

To kill the pain

The bed sheets wrap around

His feet lift from the ground

 

Alas, he is finally free

From the person 

He was thought to be
