»Life could never be another jail«

by Lesedi Modibane, October 18, 2006

Life could never be another jail
Leaving me sad and pale
Wish I could rewind the days
Change the decision I made
I'm caught up in a situation
Contemplating on the next move
I should be making
Need to change course in my direction
Escape this sick repetition
Life could never be another jail
Got a thousand things to say
In love triangles
Peeps are left dazed in tangles
Leave space for when things dismantles
As it aint roses and gloom
When emptiness fills the room
Free your dome
Needless to say
We craft our own ways
Our thoughts
determines how we play
As Life could never be another jail.
