Poem by Randy

Written by: Randy

Randy, 30

Incarcerated: 16 years

Housed: San Quentin

Pain is seeing a person killed

A life, a love, a dream unfulfilled 

Death taking even the strong-willed

Pain is piercing cries in the night

A family and a ghastly sight

Bloodied hands pleading with all their might

Pain is the time when 

You face those you’ve harmed and tell them

That you are sorry you killed them 

Receive more inspiring stories and news from incarcerated people around the world.
