The following is a poem to insidetime, from issue January 2011
The New! Volume 5 insidepoetry book a collection of hundreds of poems by prisoners, is available from this site!
I can do it I’ll stay clean
I’ve been saying since I was seventeen
I’ll do it for this or that
And once again I fall in the trap
Now here I am at twenty-eight
Locked away behind those big steel gates
No kids, no home, nothing left
Just sat alone with a messed up head
I used the drugs and I used the drink
And not once did I stop and think
That how I feel and what I’d done
Was mainly because I’d seen it from my mum
But now I am a mum myself
I should have stopped an’ thought
Of the path my kids will take
Cause kids only know what they are taught
I hope I can change the life I’ve made
Cause never did I want to become
The person I hated the most “my mum”
Or my kids to turn into me!
So here I sit at 28 locked behind the big steel gates
And now I’m clean and alcohol free
The Hard Part
Hear my Voice
How Life Can Change
Life (is not a sentence)
