    Bars From Behind Bars

    "Bars From Behind Bars"All I ever wanted was a Father, to love & hold me tight/Now all I have is a cell, where it's so lonely & cold at nightEyes holding back the tears, so my peers don't think that I'm weak/So many years I've spent looking answers, so many questions to a past that runs so deepUsing poetry as my release, to escape my bleak surroundings/From the abuse I received since a youth, to under the roof of the prison landingsDeeply regretting the texts I sent, cause sending 'em sent me 2 HMP/Like my life weren't already a sentence, closing my eyes, pretending that I'm freeBut in reality I'm caged like an animal, for the crime of a cry for help/For fighting back against my misery, lyrically for the rights of my likkle girlIt's me, myself & I now, living for the hope of better days/Sweating from the eye brow, ever since I got attacked on my second dayI know there's gotta be a better way, & with the right help, I know I'll find it/Cause God blessed me with the talent of rhyme, but in time I let my anger blind itDeep in my heart I wish I could rewind it, to the time when my mind was pure like snow/But for now I'll just seek the cure, cause I've got such a long way to go.Copyright 2008 The Elusive Mr Dunne (All rights reserved) https://allpoetry.com/poem/16286127-Bars-From-Behind-Bars-by-Mr-dunne-poetry

    Stay Down

    "Stay Down"Dear God, it's been a while, I don't know what to say/I need to open up my heart, but if I do, they'll lock me awayBut how can they lock me away, for spitting the misery I feel in my heart/When the ones that made me betrayed me, when I was just a baby in the darkFiending for a father figure, and crying for his mother/Wishing they'd love him, but they wished they had anotherSo it hurts me to say this, I've been a cursed seed since day one/I guess I weren't a product of love, I was just what come after a night of funWith nowhere for me to run to lord, no place for me to hide/I'm coming to you asking for help, in the hope I can confideAll of my tears, all of my fears, and all the years that I'm facing/All the tears and years I wasted, now it's prison or probationGot me pacing, constantly hating, on the system that we live in/Cause it's hard playing these cards, when their the wrong cards that they givingBut still I'm never giving up, because I know there's better ways/Still I stay two fingers up, until I see them better days.Copyright 2011 The Elusive Mr Dunne (All rights reserved) https://allpoetry.com/poem/16288102-Stay-Down-by-Mr-dunne-poetry
