The Surprising Power of Bars
You made the mistake
Thinking them a prison
when instead they are a launching off place
to find strength and compassion
a barless world
would find impossible.
About this poem
Here is what I have learned in a life where few things have gone smoothly. My compassion is stronger. My soul is stronger. My love is stronger.
If everything in life is a tradeoff, as I believe. I’ll take it.
