THE MATRIX HELPS ME


“Good Luck to you” the nurse does say
I smiled as I went on my way.
Most inmates are not as positive as me
I look for the signs that show intelligently.
it seems that’s the assumption is not to get out
Thank Jesus I was protected with the matrix
within walls or without.
Yes, the matrix can help you and I see the
connections all the time
We are all connected even in a place
where people have committed crime.
No matter where you go on the planet
we can not escape
Escape the matrix that does not judge but
can help us with our fate.
I had to go in so I could write poetry to change
consciousness of inmates who were in a depressed state.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
