Why is a question that runs through my mind
all through the day and even when I lay in bed at night
I think about all the bad things I've done in the past
Man, am I so glad those days don't last
Now I have time to think about what I have done
Even dream about the day I will be back with my family again
I wonder why it took me so long to see the life I was leading wasn't right for me
Now I am doing my best to stay off the road of fear and hate
So that I can stay in the free-world instead of in here
God has given me another chance to lead a better life
But if I get messed up again why should I get a second chance
Why my poem?
Why my life!
