Confinement

by Tanya

It's hard to see
My son go to jail
Once you've made that
Decision to let him
Go there
You can't get him
Back out
It's total confinement
Not only for the child
But the parent, too

Like being put in a cage
I felt like I was trapped

What he feels
I feel
Only worse
Because he thinks I can save him
When I can't
