questions inside prison walls
awake at night
inside darker cells
what will it be like
if the doors ever open
for these broken old bones
will anyone be there
to claim these ashes
the box holding
my worldly position
to shed a tear
say a kind word
will it still be
this place
without compassion
burned inside my mind

how long will it take
to cross this wide street
when we were going
I was always the first one there
you were always
asking me why
I was so happy
its become you were there
