INMATE POEMS

Worth It? By: Rodney Fenner

Every time the hardships surface
and for every single moment I’ve hurted
I put the pain of my life in these verses
and sit back to wonder if anything’s worth it

Years of my life eaten by this prison
A gigantic gap where my freedom is missing
Surrounded by men by whom I’m sickened
In no way was this the life I’d envisioned

What in the world could possibly be worth this?
Worth the prime of my life that I’ve missed?
Worth the woman I love, but can’t be with?
or children I should have that don’t exist?

Most people’s hardships surface and leave
But they don’t deal with issues like these
Most people don’t have this insufferable disease
Where the only cure in the world is to be free
And the only answer your wondering mind can see
Is that NOTHING in life was worth this to me
