Notes from the Inside: "Mother"


YOU are the First
beginnings Of the first love I've ever known...
 kindness, warmth, trust,
  All this you have shown...
YOU are
the perfect rainbow
across the sky of every human being,
 YOU are the flower view
 my soul keep seeing...

Notes from the Inside: Anthony Cozart

Twenty-two points, plus triple-word-score, plus fifty points for using all my letters. Game's over. I'm outta here.

What I Learned at Folsom State

How does one keep his sanity?
In a world totally insane
Why should one have humanity ?
When the world is so inhumane

Once upon a time we forgot
What we did not know, we knew
The victims of a fiendish plot
And the evil things that men do

Notes from the Inside: Noel Sambrana

Greetings, I am writing in representation of those who are being held in the buildings of California's biggest money machine. Better known as prison. I must contend, I sure don't see any of that money my confinement is generating, especially not in reforming me with education.
