Poetical Prisoner

I’m a poetical prisoner 

trapped in this world, 

all I have are these words, 

these tears, 

these sins of mine! 

Trapped in my own cage 

devil on my back 

waging a war of rage! 

They turned my heart to stone 

still they want another drop 

But they need to stop! 

Nowhere to run to 

one eyed beast on every corner, 

Everyman devouring his feast! 

I turn to the sky and cry : 

“Please God don’t forsake me, 

all i need is love and a little change!”
