New Poem

Forced to go to prison in hopes of change.
How can we change in a life filled with pain?
A place where the strong survive and the weak are beaten and left to die.
Metal bars to keep us in,
The moment they’re open the violence begins.
No hope of reform or change in a place filled with so much pain,
My dreams take me away because in my heart I know there is a better way.
My body is confined, but my mind is free,
That’s one thing that prison couldn’t take from me.
We smile, laugh but trust me it’s not real,
In prison, one wrong thing will get you killed.
So, as you read this, please think before you react,
Because trust me you don’t want to be where I’m at.

Forgive me for all the pain I’ve caused.
Andrew Wirth
