Showers: a poem


Thump! Thump! Thump!

Can you hear

The drops of rain

Everyday I wake up

There’s a new

Drop of pain

I truly don’t know

What to do

I’ve passed

The boiling point

Of insane


I’m tired

Of waking up

To this

Four corner cage

I miss my family

I miss my wife

But most importantly

I miss my life

I can’t do this

No more

It ain’t me

Forced to lie

On concrete

When I sleep

I want to

Be with my


I want to

Live my life

I wish I could

Hold my spouse

In my arms

At night

God give me

The strength

Don’t let them

Take my pride

Hold my hand

Through these

Rainy days

And foggy nights
