Locked In...

Posted to Action Poetry

We're all locked into this life
No longer a lease, with an option to buy
Refinancing, no longer a chance
There's no getting out, or looking back

A long list, with various accessories
Crime of living and surviving the streets
Insurance plans to reimburse the living
Compensation to continue the burning

In our own redemption stirring
We become accustomed to ongoing warring
Day to day, never knowing which will be the last
No sense in planning for a future, we'll have no part
