Please be gentle..... This was written back in 1992...while in jail facing a 50 year sentence. .. One of the first written.


Life On Hold

Time is passing so slowly.....



Facing the future armed with uncertainty,

I pray the absence of normality makes everyday the same.

No longer to deny my mistakes,

I know where to place the blame.



So I try to make the best of this situation,

stripped of all my dignity,

still I maintain my frustration deep within my mind.

Behind these bars I am able to keep my sanity.



For however long this must be,

my time will be spent focusing on tomorrow...

Forgetting about yesterday....

while remembering to smile today.
