I’m more motivated today,
Trying to find a simpler way.
To beat the judicial system,
Must appeal to someone’s wisdom.
That’s laughable to say the least,
As the judicial system, is quite the beast?
No easy way to start again,
As they’re in charge, of where and when.
They’re forcing me to run away,
I have no other place to stay.
All I want, is a productive life,
A new beginning, not all this strife.
Instead they, have dropped the ball,
And of course, blame me for all.
In response, all I can say,
“I’ve paid my dues, I want to stay”.
So now, again, I sit and wait,
Still a prisoner, this time of fate.
If left to them, and their discretion,
Will watch the system, and its regression.
