Someone done done me wrong…

~My Cell Door~

I sit quietly, alone, behind my cell door,

The world outside rapidly flowing by.

I am trapped inside my four walls,

No one outside can hear my calls.

Am I trapped inside this silent world forever?

The pilot light to the future is growing dim,

Innocence fills its way to the brim.

For I have not committed a crime;

Still I do the time.

This cruel world, which you call kind, has done me wrong.

Why am I to pay for the crime?

Will I sit behind this cell door for eternity?

Sympathy is running low,

For in due time I will live no longer

And die behind my cell door.
