A THUGS PRAYER (Poetry from Men and Women behind bars)

I Wonder Why

I wonder why
I feel terribly alone.
I wonder how
I’ve traveled
To this distant solitude…
Where was I?
How did I traverse
To this place?

I once had dreams –
I imagined
Things of a far off land

Now
I find each day
Further and further away
Away from the one
I used to be.
The one I was meant
To become.

Help me oh One
Help me to find the trails
That will lead me back,
Back to the place
Of my childhood dreams.
