Just Some Thoughts
No phone calls no txts no msgs and no mail
8 days straight
Patiently waiting for the phone to ring
A txt a msg anything
To let friends and family know that they are okay
Is it right that we are meant to feel this way?
Is it right that they are often treated inhumane?
Just some of the thoughts that run through one's brain
Worrying about the very real lasting effects of PTSD and the pain
Of knowing that when they come home they come home different than when they left
Family and friends out here feeling bereft
No real job prospects no tools to help them not recidivate
Such is their fate
Once they go behind those walls and close that gate
Enough to make anyone who has someone on the inside more than just a little irate
I hate how they are mistreated while serving their debt to society
Regardless of their crime or previous notoriety
People can change and rehabilitate and be released back into society.....
