A Stolen Life

by Jayden English
(Melksham, Wiltshire, UK)

He wants to fight,
I'm pleading no!
He grips me tight,
and won't let go
I find the door,
he's got a blade
I hit the floor,
and start to fade
Bright and white,
I'm near the end
No strength to fight,
the ground I tend
Here I lay,
cold and bare
My mother prays,
how's this fair,
The pain's too much,
I can't hold on
Just one more touch,
and now I'm gone
Said he was tough,
his gang had risen,
Things got tough,
with life in prison.
