    The Freedomless

    bars shut from behind
    lights out
    tears flow down
    people scream
    then nothing
    but the
    quiet darkness
    breakfast time
    lights on
    hard walk
    hard look
    hard words
    you see who was screaming
    but just walk hardly on by
    someone getting jumped
    your hardness slips if only for a moment
    then you join the crowd
    guards come
    taken to the hole
    When will that be me
    Will I see my kid again
    Why did I do that
    I'm a change......for the better

    changing isn't easy
    you must stay "hard"
    you must not let your guard down
    so you stay "hard"
    Your here
    visiting hours
    your kid smiles
    the questions start
    the tears want to escape your eyes

    Was it worth it?
    Could you have avoided it?
    What and how can you change?
    Will you change?.....

    Your words are powerful and speak the truth.. I love this poem.




    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
