Have you ever felt like you were fading
into the blue,
from family you love and friends that you knew?
How about the thought of becoming the past?
From the life you once had that’s now been lost.
Have you ever felt like it was all for nothing,
the friendship you built
that you thought would be something?
Did you ever think it was all a waste of time,
like me sitting in this cell while writing this rhyme?
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be me,
sitting in this box, wishing to be free?
These are my thoughts I face every night,
hoping I’m not just a memory since out of sight.
I’m going to stay positive in my own little way,
I’ll continue to pray to have my life back one day.
