Crime Makes Sense!!!

Fragile lives bring fragile promises
Fragile lives bring fragile promises

It Makes No Sense

Yet another sentence
What is the sense
Another crime committed
No sense of penitence

The hurt that I’ve caused
Has caused so much sorrow
Not only to family
But people I don’t know

I’m a menace to many
Because of the drugs that I take
I keep with bad company
That at first was just funny

But now in prison it’s real
People can never understand how I feel
Crime is committed in a life where I steal
It’s the only way to get my next meal.
