FOR INMATES WILLING TO CHANGE


Why not have certain inmates who are willing to change—
realize they can get better and write a new page—
A new page to their life from not going back to the insane—
Through sheriffs good thoughts, actions words and deeds
help these inmates feel worthy to get out and succeed.
Have a sheriff as a sponsor who will be there for them—
Is that an idea to treat them like family or friend?
When nurses do the “psyche evaluation”
why not make it more of how can we help
them get better without more incarseration?
Not just are you going to commit suicide?
How about what do we need to do to get
you to a point of healing deep inside?
Relationships then between law enforcement
would take on a new meaning-
Not the system of control which
lacks empathy and can be demeaning.
