My Life On The Inside

Uneasy. Guarded. I see no friends only potential enemies. Who is around? I cannot tell. Looks can be deceiving, so I must trust my gut and remain prepared.

Back against the wall. Little to no words- I spot check faces, walks, stances and movements (penitentiary language). Everyone playing along as if fear does not invade their days, if only for a second.

I know, correction- we know that here on this side killers who have been killed, murderers murdered and robbers robbed.

In the land of the living dead we fight to the death. At times to remain sane and others to continue breathing. At no instance is there ease. Sleep is the cousin of death and ignorance is a man’s worst nightmare.

The walls around me are soaked in blood and guts. The blood shed of POWs (Prisoners Of War) down to the lowest of the low and cowards with no morals.

Men made slaves to their own secrets. Can’t hide or run. Armed with nothing but my heart, I stand alone, yet I stand tall. To be broken by barbarism, bars and chains is not my fate- My life on the inside!
