Vice Versa

By Chantal R.

As I sit here looking at these walls, I wonder if anyone hears my calls? I’m not behind bars…but I still feel caged. I just want to stop feeling this rage. I don’t want to commit this crime, I don’t want to sell drugs just to get by. I want to stop smoking & getting high. It got to a point where I wasn’t just wasting time. I spent my last dollar & lost everything I had. I thought it was making me feel better but I was still sad. So now that I’m looking at these enclosed walls, I finally realize this is where I’m supposed to be after all.
