Homes and Prisons

While others were busy
turning their homes
into prisons
My prison turned home
broke into laughs.

While the incarcerated inmates
eye me in disbelief
Intoxicated I
lie in relief.

As air through the cracked walls
of my prison waft
A lone and lean voice
in a sage tone whispers:

A home or a prison
is not a four-walled thing;
your long-lived life
decides its state.

I like your poems, but by double spacing them you make them very hard to read which is a real shame.
