Melissa Thom, Grade 7
Found on or with you
Jailed for life behind bars
what a view.
You don't know what could happen
you would fear
What should come to draw near
Cold & wet, you feel no love
you look to see what awaits you above
Your future lies in this dark wet cell
your family & friends all wish you well
You imagine you will never see the light of day
My life, goodbye to yourself you say
The cell gives you memories and many a pain
but you know what you've done and deserve for smuggling cocain.
