"Sticks and Stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me" Be good or be good at it ----

Locked in a cage,
Going Out of my mind,
So I'm thinking of you,
to help pass the time,

Loneliness is what happens,
When freedoms taken away,
We did this to ourselves,
Is what we all say,

It seems we never stop and think,
Until its too late,
And a life behind bars,
Is a probable fate,

Friends forget we exist,
Family members cry,
Hope of things getting better,
The only reason we try,

Time is our enemy,
When it gets down to it,
Too much, Not Enough,
And can we get through it,

As the sun goes down,
And darkness takes over,
Evil thoughts corrode,
A mind that is sober,

But the sun will come up,
Causing darkness to fade,
And happiness blooms,
In Every color and shade,

As time flows along,
Past memories grow cold,
And we live to the future,
For what it can hold,

My Heart to my Loved ones,
My Love to those Dear,
In eternity well always be traveling near-
