Marcia, this made me cry, literally. My son is in a state prison for a non-violent crime and this is exactly how he feels. I just had to remind my family that he needs support. Great job describing the inner thoughts and feelings of an inmate.

says:

Oh Riss, I’m sorry it made you cry but I KNOW exactly how you feel cause my son is also incarcerated. I wrote this after receiving a letter from him about how he felt lately; see Author’s Notes on this poem. We have to keep on praying and sending letters or poems to let them someone cares. Keep the faith, Riss!

My son likes it when I send him the stories I write. He gets to pass the manuscript around for other inmates, too. if you send me your son’s address, i’ll send him a card or letter of encouragement. lisadoesburg@yahoo.com…stay strong, mama..

Marcia, This is a powerful poem with a powerful message. I can think of many periodicals it should be published to give others like your son hope. So heartfelt!

says:

Oh Patricia, you can’t imagine how much your words mean to me. I am so very touched by your praise; I’m wiping tears as I type. I hadn’t thought of submitting to periodicals, thanks for the encouragement, that’s a wonderful idea! Thanks again for your comments!!

Hi Marcia,

A lot to think about in this poem. It’s bleak, but understandably so, yet still filled with a bit of hope… if not a cry of desperation mixed in. Well done.

Thank you so much Anisa! I really appreciate your comments. Yes, I wanted to express hope as well desperation so your observation is spot on! Thanks again! (I have added an Author’s note.)
