Better Just to Try

Better Just To Try

Beneath the surface is the truth as my body language lies,
To cover up the pain and all the anguish in my eyes.
This life sentence I was given will be the cause of my demise,
There's no justice in this system, only a killer in disguise.
Rehabilitation? Yeah, where does that apply?
If I'm never going home and in here I'm gonna die.
I know I'm not a "monster" despite what some imply,
I have a mountain of potential but that's something "they" deny.
I admit I've made mistakes and sometimes my intentions run awry,
I used to anger to mask my pain and to hide the tears I cry.
While in this situation it's easy to wonder why,
And easier to give up when it's better just to try.

Hi it's Elisabeth, maybe you remember me? I'm sure you will...
when I tell you I was going thur
old bills ect and came upon a stack of letters sent to my address (for L)
I read a few, you are a very eloquent writer. I hated you for the hold you had on her.... my precious child.
It changed her. I forgive you and
also for much more. As you know life can change in an instant.
Keep writing, learning, praying. E
