A very special person to me is spending a year in jail. These words describe how he feels somedays.

The prison gates won't open up for me


This ain't how I want my life to be


Spending my days staring at cold grey walls


Wondering if this is all


Is this all I have left anymore


Thoughts and dreams of what waits outside this door


24 and wasting my life away


Sitting here taking it day by day


Dreaming of my to boys


Daddy little pride and joys


Dreaming of a loved one left behind


Knowing she's going out of her mind


Hoping for the day the gate opens and I go free


Praying she'll be waiting for me


These cold grey ceils


Remind you of hell


A lonely place to be


When your in this hell like me


I know I must spend my time


But it's driving me out of my mind


The outside world keeps turning


And to be in her arms I'm yearning


But these prison gates won't set me free


This ain't the way I wanted my life to be

I was checking out your bio, and saw this poem. With my step-grandmother in prison for the second time, this one caught my eye. You've written a good poem that seems to catch the heartfelt feelings of the one behind bars. How sad for them to throw good sense to the winds and have to lose a year of living a free and productive life. They need our prayers, that God will redeem the time and reach them where they are.
