Inside Looking Out

By George Albert Escamilla

Behind the walls, the bars, and this glass

I remember the year that did just pass.

In sadness, I wonder what life is really about

So I sit on the inside looking out.

 

With only my hopes, my wishes, and dreams

Everything is gone now, or so it seems.

Wanting to cry, to scream, and then shout

I sit on the inside looking out.

 

Needing to run, but where could I hide?

I’ll learn all these rules and how to abide.

Can I really do this?  I wonder in doubt

As I sit on the inside looking out.

 

Ignoring the wall, the bars, and the glass

I try to forget the years as they pass.

I realize now, freedom’s what it’s all about

As I sit on the inside looking out.
