Inmate 24806

Pictures and visions
dreaming of moments
hopes and wishes
the things never had
daddy's a mystery
mama's history
system failed to see
pain and misery
innocence stripped
future decided
at the first breath of life
raised in the streets
taught by the steel
fighting the only way
knowledge missing
half truths are plenty
a jaded point of view
hustling to make it
stigma couldn't shake it
every attempt failed
step over and looked around
invisible to all
now here I sit
inmate 23806
the scourge of all
