Lesson Learned...written By Cwhatic 3/11/11 While Doing Time In Werdcc

ITS MY FIRST TIME DOWN, NOW WHERE DO I BEGIN
MY ADDICTION TO ALCOHOL.OR MY THREE DAY BINGE?
NEVER THOUGHT I HAD A PROBLEM, AFTER ALL ITS JUST BEER
LOSING ALL YOUVE EVER KNOWN, INSTILLS YOUR WORST FEARS!
EIGHTEEN DAYS IN COUNTY, PRAYING FOR REDEMPTION
SAYING GOODBYE TO MY FAMILY FOUR DAYS BEFORE WERDCC INCARCERATION!
SHACKLED FROM HEAD TO TOE FOR MY FOUR HOUR DRIVE
ARRIVING IN VANDALIA WONDERING, WILL I MAKE IT OUT ALIVE?
BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO IS VERY HARD TO SWALLOW
SQUAT AND COUGH HOW MANY TIMES, EXCUSE ME, I DONT FOLLOW?
NEXT STOP WAS CLOTHING ISSUE, WITH TWO OPEN SHOWERS
BEING SPRAYED WITH DELOUSE LOSING IT ALL IN JUST A FEW HOURS
NO WELCOME TO B-WING WAS EVER SAID
SIX SETS OF PROBLEMS PER ROOM, GOD, I WISHED I WERE DEAD!
EIGHT WEEKS LATER ENDURING EVERY TEST UNDER THE SUN
IN THE BACK OF MY MIND STILL, WOULD IT HAVE BEEN EASIER WITH A GUN?
MOVING TO 4-D WITH A DIFFERENT STATE OF MIND
LEARNING TO ADDRESS MY PAST TO SEE WHAT I CAN FIND.
MISSING OUT ON HOME LIFE, ONE THING OF GREAT IMPORTANTCY
FIRST BABY, FIRST GRANDMA, FIRST AUNTIE, MY ONLY SISTERS PREGNANCY!
WAS THE LAST TWELVE PACK WORTH IT, ABSOULTELY NOT
GETTING A 120 SHOCK IN PRISON, FEELING LIKE A ROBOT!
ONLY LOSING A SMALL BIT OF MY YOUNG LIFE
AFTER ALL ITS JUST BEER, TURNED INTO A HUGE SACRIFICE!
NOW JUST A FEW WEEKS UNTIL I GO HOME
A MORE CONFIDENT STATE OF MIND, NOT SO ALL ALONE.
NEVER FORGETTING THIS EXPERIENCE, 120 DAYS FLEW ON BY
GOD PUT ME IN THIS PLACE, I WILL NEVER QUESTION WHY!
WATCHING GIRLS GO HOME, NOW ITS MY TURN
WITH MY ADDICTION, ALL I RECEIVED WAS PRISON
LESSON LEARNED.
