A Vicious Cycle

Left alone inside this dark tunnel that leads to nowhere makes my heart bleed. Not a thousand deaths, but this one is as painful as the many. A steel cage surrounding iron doors that hold cold hearts. Feel the agony of a man who suffers daily behind the loss of freedom. Similar to a concentration camp, yet the discord disturbs one’s concentration. Unable to focus on anything other than survival, this concrete jungle captures, breeds, holds, and lets loose animals of all kinds. The scales of justice tilted towards injustice, and we feel the injustices ten- fold. Therefore those on the inside dish out injustices of their own. The judicial system should understand; shouldn’t they? Not a promotion of injustice anywhere, simply pointing out that if one is what one does, then comprehension shouldn’t be far off.

The condemnation of men and women ignites a spark that turns into a flame, which torches our city streets and sets our many children ablaze with the ignorance needed to trap them alongside the generation before them. A chain reaction. A domino effect. Incarcerate the parent, control the child and a vicious cycle begins.

My heart bleeds because i am one of the many who have fallen for the trap.
