When you feel sad
I wish you happiness

When you’re in doubt
I wish you faith

When you’re discouraged
I wish you hope

When you’re afraid
I wish you strength

When your heart is heavy
I wish you joy

When you’re troubled
I wish you peace

When you’re lonely
I wish you all love

Tears of Hope

By LG

Dedicated to Free Minds Volunteers

Poetry bleeding from my instrument
Staining my canvas for years
Generosity pouring from my peers
Transforming my hope into tears

It seems like it was just yesterday
When I realized this wonderful gift
Ever since I opened my present
My life has taken a shift

When your desire for something is strong
The manifestation will come to pass
Uncontrollable emotions
As you say to yourself, “At last”!

Cursed since my incarceration
now blessed and highly favored
Indebted to a Free Mind
This taste will forever be savored

After a finished masterpiece
I step back and stare in awe
All thanks and glory to god
For a talent I never foresaw

Eager to encourage the world
I humbled myself with joy
With passion to strengthen the weak
Into a fortress no one can destroy

It’s hard to express with words
But thank you for giving me hope
My tears describe my emotion
As a brilliant kaleidoscope

Life

By DJ 

What is Life?
Life is like a thousand memories
Countless thoughts and endless dreams
Early morning, ocean breeze, river flow and shallow streams

What is Life?
There’s 1 God, people worship many
Life is full of hate, crime, jealousy, and envy
Sometimes life is joyful, sometimes life is stressing
Sometimes life is a curse, sometimes life is a blessing

What is Life?
Life is a journey to fulfill a purpose
Life is an open show that has closed curtains
Life may be short for some and long for others
But life is not for Brothers killing brothers

What is Life?
We Live, we Die, we smile, we cry
We mope, we whine, we waste valuable time
LIFE!!!!

A Mother’s Love

By IS

Your mother’s love is tender and soft
You’re her employee and she’s the boss
She gave you life and gives you love
Everlasting joy and never-ending hugs
 
She was there from the start
And you’ll be there until her end
She’s my mother, my sister,
And my favorite best friend
