Poetry

There are many talented artists locked behind bars with no means of sharing their art with the world. Regardless, these men & women use their art as a means to mentally escape & relieve stress, in order to deal with the harsh reality of living in prison. Robert Frost once said, “Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.” In prison, poets offer liberation to not only themselves, but to those that hear their words & share their sentiments. Ironically, poetry within the prison walls allows these men & women to have a voice and pen down some of their deepest feelings. Please enjoy the poems below.
