Wasted time death sentence

Harris, Dewayne L.



Wasted Time Death Sentence The time that I wasted is my biggest regret Spent in the plantation places I will never forget Just sitting and thinking about the things that I've done The crying, the laughing, the hurt and the fun Now it's just me and my hard driven guilt Behind a wall of emptiness I allowed to be built I'm trapped in my body, just wanting to run Back to my youth with its laughter and fun But the chase is over and there's no place to hide Everything is gone, including my pride With reality suddenly right in my face I'm scared, alone and stuck in this plantation of death sentence Now memories of the past flash through my head And the pain is obvious by the tears that I shed I ask myself why and where I went wrong I guess I was weak with death when I should have been strong Living for the drug dealers and the wings I had grown My feelings were human being lost, afraid to be shown As I look at my past, it's so easy to see death The fears that I had, afraid to be myself I just live for the day when I'll get a new start And the dreams I still hold deep in my heart I hope I can make it, I at least have to try Because I'm heading towards death and I don't want to die I'd pretend to be rugged, so fast and so cool When actually lost like a blinded old fool gangsta I'm getting too old for this tiresome game Of acting real hard with no sense of shame It's time that I change and get on with my life Death sentence Fulfilling my crime's dreams for a family and wife What my future will hold within North America Prison death sentence I really don't know But the death sentence hold my years that I've wasted are started to show!
