Purple & Gold Passion

I volunteer with this wonderful group called “Free Minds” that runs a book club and poetry workshop for incarcerated youth in Washington, DC jails. Every fourth Tuesday of the month, we meet at a church near Dupont Circle and review, comment, and critique poetry written by incarcerated youth, as the group motto says, “to write new chapters in their lives.”

There is some really phenomenal poetry that comes out of the workshop, and this is one of my favorites. If you read it and visit the original blog post, you can see my comments of why I love it….
