This poem was taken with permission from a collection of stories written by the students of the school at Stony Mountain Correctional Institute, Manitoba, entitled Spirit Within Our Dreams, p.67.
My life is becoming happier,
My eyes are regaining their shine,
Some peace and love and self-respect,
Is back in this heart of mine.
It's not because of others,
Or done professionally,
I just looked inside, and thought a lot,
And found something worth it - ME!
