I am the convict,
I possess the most unique abilities
Known unto mankind…
With words alone, I’m capable of
Transforming who I am
Into whom I want to be…
I’m one of the most intelligent of all beings.
But in my attempts to be recognized.
I remain ignorant and unseen…
I dwell in place of never land,
Where living is non-existence..
Your fate is King, and you can
Only exist, years at a time…
I portray the image of those who seem
Confident and secure, yet beneath the
Surface of my external I am scared and insecure…
I am an illusion of my own undertaking..
I wear the face of horror to elude others,
Not to see the fear in me…
I claim it to be self sustained yet
I seek out ways for others to take
Care of me. Prison is my refuge for shelter,
Protection and exposure to the real world…
I emphasize the value of being your own man, with the demands of respect, but it seems
I’m not totally satisfied unless another man
Is telling me what to do,
And I’ve lost all respect…
I profess allegiance to a hood, group or sect,
But those who truly love me, I will abandon
With small regret..
The virtues of being true to the game,
what kind of fool am I???
