November 2012

I was disappointed that my September blog was not accessible, especially since I shared a poem from a young woman. So I will include her poem again this month.
Thoughts of a Pod Inmate
A place where freedom doesn't ring
People come & people go
No real relationships
Not much to go off of but the thoughts in your head
Living Life is not an option
Subject to ways you're not used to
Words from others seem so abstract
No one you can really trust
No drugs to keep you running
Gotta dig deeper into emotional pits
This definitely is how you don't want to live
Reality is afar
Reinventing yourself is a must
The future is always unknown
Jail/prison is a hard place to be & not just for the one who is incarcerated. Families & friends, even colleagues share with compassion the difficulty of incarceration. There is a new support group for those in that category. Especially as we enter in the holidays, a time when it very hard to be away from those we love, this may be an important support.
The group meets every 1st and 3rd Wed. of the month from 7 pm- 8:30 pm
@ The Urban League Rm. 101, 2222 S. Park St.
For more info. call 233-9751
Peace, Julia
