The Quiet Life

On the outside

With my peers

I’m the wild one

In here

With my peers

I’m the mild one

Out there I would skateboard

Play drums in punk bands

Take drugs and womanize

I always say

‘Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do’

‘Which leaves you plenty of options’

On the inside

I’m a book worm

Always reading and writing

And I often play

A little game I call

‘Minding my own fucking business’

One fight

In five years

Has to be

Some sort of record

And I haven’t touched contraband

In over a year

In the future

Who knows how I will see myself

Hard time behind me

I will embrace the quiet life
