Tears of Regret

Lost in a system in prison doing time,
It takes all I can do to keep a peace of mind.

Quietly, I suffer here on the inside,
Bound up feelings and emotions I try desperately to hide.

A moment of weakness can come at great cost,
Much gained respect, so quickly can be lost.

Learning to cope and deal with each passing year,
On the outside we appear hard..on the inside we shed tears.

I try to hold back tears..stand strong and be true,
With every let down and betrayal it gets harder to do.

Living a prisoner’s life..I would love to forget,
All the mistakes that causes me Tears of Regret…
